We have a FL SP135 with 2 alternators. A fabricator made the bracket. You could make a template, with a few dimensions and have one made. The picture was to show the belt tensioner not the bracket. Hopefully you can get the idea of how the bracket was made. If that's what you're looking for I can get you some more pictures and/or measurements.

That's a great shot of the tensioner. Yes do you have anything else on the bracket?

Daddyo: The bracket was made from 1/4" stock and it's a small frame alternator. The bolt pattern on the front of the SP135 maybe different than the FL120. The last 2 pictures are looking down and looking up.

Do you have one or two engines and are they counter rotating?

I am not sure but if the alternator spins the wrong way will it still work?

I was working on a friends hydraulic motor. It was used and came off a boat with twin gassers. The pump was mounted to the left turn motor.
When we hooked it up it would not work. Reversed the motor and it worked like a charm.

I dunno just thinking.

PS Larry using a turnbuckle for a tensioner. What a great idea.

Hero status dude.

I'm so embarrassed but thanks.

We have 2 alternators, same size with identical 3 stage external voltage regulators. One alternator is for the house bank and one is for the engine: no switches or combiners other than disconnects.

I'm a big fan of using unconventional thing in conventional ways.

I have a few things rigged on my boat that work like a house a fire. People just shake ther heads and laugh.

One instance is I have hydraulic power steering. The pump is mounted on a bracket with a lever. Pull the lever it tightens the belt. Push it the other way and the belt slips right off. no tools required to change the belt.
