Re: Type 3 replacement / rebuilt dynamo?

Incorrect unfortunately, the pulley is type 3 only. As far as I know the best you will be able to get is a good used item. 6V and 12V are also different diameter so I recall. But otherwise yes they are fairly stright forward to rebuild, the only rreally fiddly bit it getting the brushes back on the ...

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
