    G'day if you are not going for a concourse rebuild then go the alt route much better charge rate and easier to get parts for, I see you have a petrol (sorry gas) model so an alt conversion should be quite easy.

    Go to the wreckers (junkyard) and get an alt of an early mod vehicle with an inbuilt reg they usually have two wires off the back, one a stud that hooks up to batt pos with about 8mm wire and the other a spade terminal that gets powered up from the ign on at the back of ign switch, through a warning light (you need the kind with two wires LED type no good) power in one wire and the other wire goes off to the smaller spade terminal on the back of the alt. This cicruit excites the alt making it charge and you know it is charging because the light has gone out .

    I don't know if they are as readily avail over there as they are here but the 35amp Bosch ones were used over here in most of the cars from mid 60s through until the mid 80s ( i.e LOTS of them laying around and can be had for about $10 from a wrecker), some are still using them today only with higher amp to cope with the greater demand of the modern vehicle

    is this a 3 cyl 2000? If so the generator is also the tachometer drive.

    if this is a prior model 4 cyl, you could go alt... though these rebuild failry cheap ( mind you.. an alt is fairly cheap too! )

    repops, new, for about 90$ online.

    alts for 45$ ( -15 for core ) locally at autozone.. make yer own brackets..e tc...

    gen regs.. 25-40$ etc..

    let us know what help you need!

    Their starters, generators & alternators are quite good,at least the ones we sell. We sell 1100-0100 starters for the post-65 Ford Diesels to the exception of anything else. Flip side, I just got burned in a big way on a double clutch from there. Not likely to happen twice.
