alternator relocation...

has anyone relocated their alternator up to the a/c compressor location? my a/c has never worked anyway so i want to remove the compressor and put the alt in its place. are there any oem brackets that can be used or would it be custom?

Re: alternator relocation...

i guess ill repost this.... YOU NEED A RENIX AC BRACKET TO DO THIS!!!

the first thing i did, was remove the AC, and relocate the altenator. this was a pretty easy job, once we figured out what to do. This only works for renix setups. but making 1 adaptor, and using some washers, it bolts to the stock AC mount. a 75" belt was needed (24" shorter than stock!)

this is version two as the first idea was ok but could get the belt to run true so i cut the orginal bracket rerouted the belt .

Re: alternator relocation...

I have never tried it but I thought you could us the brackets off of a YJ. They had there alt located up top or maybe one off of the new XJ's

Re: alternator relocation...

You've got quite the mix there, looks like mustang or SHO tb, 99 intake, renix ac bracket, 96 head...Anyways, do you have to remove the battery at all for this installation? No drilling required at all? If its just in and out then I'm up for trying it.

Re: alternator relocation...

awesome! just so happens that my XJ is a 90 renix. i plan on upgrading to a HO head in the future but you say it will still bolt up? I was also planning on replacing the mech fan with an electric one and removing the pulley for it like in the pic on the link up above.
