    Alternate alternator???

    I have installed an 06 Vette LS2 in my 71 Vette and am in the process of installing a Hydra-Boost setup. Upon installing the booster, my Willwood master cylinder comes uncomfortably close to the battery terminal on the alternator. Does anyone know of another alternator with the battery terminal in a different location? Mine protrudes out the back. I see that Flaming River has a billet one with a radial style terminal that would work but that is $$$. I'd prefer to use some sort of a stock unit.

    Just as a follow up, I stopped by a local alternator repair shop (Larry's Generator in Elizabeth, NJ). After opening the unit up, he determined that he was able to clock it 90 degrees. This put the harness connector facing the head and the battery post at roughly 1:00. The cables all reach and the post clears the master cylinder. This is not a DIY task as the stator must be epoxied in place inside the alternator housing.
