I will take the alternator system apart and show it in steps and the measurements of the two custom brackets, the triple pulley is our own design and build.


Great! I'll keep watching, should be very interesting.

Nice looking restoration. It should serve you well.
I guess you'll be adding weights and chains too.

I picked up a set of chains yesterday, will try with the chains only first, if I need weights, I am considering rear mounting a custom box for it, not sure I want wheel weights.

Yes, I'm quite interested in how you mounted it, and what sort of clearance you had in the location where you mounted it. I understand about doing the wiring in advance, sounds like you have chosen to build a formidable snow removal machine.

Seger,

Thanks for posting those pics, certainly helps me out with my own plans. Again, let me say, impressive job!

One thing I notice in these pictures, you don't have the guard in place around the drive pulley. A lot of guys have found that the belt won't disengage properly to allow easy shifting without that guard in place. Apparently the guard helps guide and shape the belt so that it won't grip on the pulley when it gets a little slack. If you aren't having any problem, great. If you are having trouble getting the clutch to release properly, see if adding the guard helps.

Hi again friends, arrived home yesterday with a brand new triple bypass operation from Halifax,
Nova Scotia. The docs say I need to relax for a while, so the Massey will be returning to storage for at least a few months, will try and get the promised pics of charging system and alternator kit as soon as I am able.

Thank you for your patience.

Got a little restoration of your own, did you? Do like the Doc says! Glad to see you back here in fine spirits.
