The engine turns clockwise on these old trucks, this alternator must be made for an engine turning counterclockwise? Thoughts? I'm going to try to find one of these style that is opposite direction.
I am doing this along with my complete AAW rewiring of my '67 Chevy C20. Does the direction air flows thru the alternator really matter (pushing or pulling air thru the alternator)? AAW recommended same alternator with one wire conversion.
