1964 1/2 Mustang replaced Generator with One Wire Alternator

The Generator on my 1964 1/2 Mustang failed so I decided to replace it with a new one wire alternator. I purchased a PowerGen
82101-2. It has a post for the generator light so I get to keep the indicator light working. I had to replace the pulley and fan from the old generator and make a slight bracket modification to get the belt pulleys to all line up. PowerGen says it's a direct fit but that just means it fits in the original bracket. I gutted the voltage regulator and used it as a terminal strip to maintain the original look. The alternator works great! I m very pleased overall with this modification. It was a little pricey but well worth it.

Nice, but now it's a two wire. I went with an added voltmeter, but I like your choice.

OK. They look very similar. Are you not able to add the shroud etc.?
