    I've been generally unhappy with the solutions that I have seen for mounting a (Delco) alternator on the Amphicar. I took a bunch of measurements and went down to the local machine shop. Here's what I ended up with:

    It goes exactly where the stock generator bolt fits (the weird hexagonal piece with one end threaded and the other tapped for a bolt).

    Seems to line up just fine. I may have to do some minor shimming to make sure the belt aligns properly, but thats a walk in the park.
