Does anyone know of a driveshaft driven altenator kit? If so, who sells them and how much? I could rig up something that would work but would like to have a kit.

I have no clue where to get them, but when I used to drag race I went to an NMCA show and seen some cars with the driveshaft alternators. You might could search with or something and see if you could find it.

Powermaster has the alt. kit for both the 9" Ford and quickchange center sections. The pulley/yoke is sold by Sweet Manufacturing in Michigan. The whole set up is kinda expensive, bout $350.00 for the alt kit and bout$120.00 for the pulley.

for what it is worth i have ran a RACEMATE water pump/alternator combo for about 5 years now with no problem. yes they are around 600.00, but it works great and i have had no problem at all.
