Oh, that's not how I thought it was going to be fitted.
On TheSamba.com there's a thread about alternator conversions and someone posted this.

Re: ALTERNATOR CONVERSION ON TYPE 3

Better photos on order, I saw how he did it. The reward section is the same diameter as a dynamo. So it fits nicely and keep the armature and pulley on the same axis. Thus a type 3 belt will still fit. He then clearanced the housing and modified a beetle dyanmo clamp. https://s2mcjw.dm.files.1drv.co...

Re: ALTERNATOR CONVERSION ON TYPE 3

You can do it with a beetle one. I'll show you some photos later.

Theres nothing wrong with a dynamo. But if you start running higher power audio equipment and other electrical stuff, the drain on the battery is greater than the dynamo can replace

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

So we may have a typo on the Bentley manual. I did question 5 degrees toe in when we were setting I up. In the rear axel chp. Youre looking at Type 3 sedan double jointed axel. That says +5 degrees, no ifs buts or coconuts. Agree? https://qtqmrg.dm.files.1drv.com/y4mMCnmj_rOx8I5smpoSheEn2-p-zV9-87L8...

Lets see if we can produce something cohearent then. Ive been using the car rather than working on it. But I have taken it for a 4 wheel alignment.
