    Those who have installed a SI10 or a SI12 in their dauntless, where did you clock your wiring harness? Up, down, drivers, or passenger side?

    Getting ready to purchase an alternator. I will be using a painless or other wiring harness when I get to that point as my project does not have one.

    Thanks

    The plug should be up and to the passenger side.

    It's very easy to re-clock the alternator so you can clock it 4 different positions to suit yourself.

    Does position matter? I'm doing the same on my 62. With a 225. With the painless wiring kit you should have enough wire to reach any position.

    BTW I am also doing PS conversion but am concerned about belts and which pulley they should connect to. Original V6 had one belt to cover all 3 pulleys. How is the PS connected if any of you have done this
