It will not be as high tech or have the same longevity as a Denso or Mitsubishi, but it will be ahead of the Chinese clone.
    Sorry. I forgot this was started as a NHC 250 thread. Is the one for the 8.3 the same?(But with a different bracket)
    I guess you have the Mitsubishi on the 8.3?

I have published all of this info about the board, but it is across several threads right now. I would do a single write up concerning the measured output and weakness of the stock 60 amp alternator, the differences between J-180 short and long mounting styles, the factory part numbers, cost, and alternate sources to acquire commercial alternator bracketry for 6CTA8.3, NHC-250, and LDT/S engines, description of each terminal found on todays alternators (most are optional), some photos of how users have adapted conventional and dual alternators, and a general clarification of civilian commercial alternators which are available at reasonable cost, including the $100 Chinese Delco clones that many are referring to as Delco's (which are not).
    What I meant was having it added to the five ton parts sticky that already exists.

    Understood (now). Yes, same alternator. Different brackets for different engines.

    What are you asking for the 130A alternator?

    Just got a report in that the p/n I have posted here for the civilian alternator bracket for the Cummins 250 (855) engine is a no-fit situation. My sources may be incorrect. Can anybody else confirm this either way? Thanks in advance, I want to take down or correct errant data if so.

    I can confirm that Cummins part #218505 (alternator bracket) DOES NOT FIT the M939 equipped with the NHC250. It is not a drop in part and would require significant machining to match the OEM bolt holes.
