I am looking at getting a new alternator for the 6 and while cruising Ebay came across these alternators from Bad Boy Classics.
Now I will assume that they are most likely a 3rd world made copy of a Lucas 18 unit which will be fine as long as they have a good reputation.
Using Youshop I can land one in NZ for under $200.
Does anyone have any experience of this company and these alternators?

Happy new year

Adrian

Bad Boy Classics???
The name would put me off buying anything from them....


If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.

I have purchased their Halogen conversions for a couple of my 2000's

Pretty good quality for the price.

Some other Stuff they sell is lower quality I think. Not tried one of the alternators.

An A127 also fits, and if you are not as concerned by looks, there is one from a Kubota mini digger (I think) that fits. Might be able to source one of those in NZ

I ended up getting a 75a A127 style alternator and starter solenoid from Bowers.
Next question is how long is the bracket from the alternator to the waterpump housing?
I am thinking of using a turnbuckle setup as it will look good
