This alternator conversion kit by EMPI fits 40 Horse to 1600cc-based Type 1 VW engines. The kit comes complete with a new EMPI 55 Amp alternator, chrome alternator stand, chrome mounting strap and chrome 3-piece backing plate set. The kit fits 1961 to 1973 Standard Beetle, 1971 to 1973 Super Beetle, 1961 to 1973 Karmann Ghia, 1973 Thing, and 1960 to 1971 Type 2 Bus models. The alternator included in this kit (P/N 9445), is not chrome, but can be dressed to match using EMPI's alternator cover (P/N 9036). For customers using this kit to replace a 6 volt generator, they will also need to purchase a 12v alternator pulley as well.

If you are converting from a 6 Volt System to a 12 Volt System, click here for our 6 to 12 Volt Conversion Kit. This alternator is internally regulated!

• If your VW has an externally regulated alternator, it will not be reused and your wiring must be modified.
• If your VW has a generator, the original voltage regulator for it must be removed and the wiring for it must be modified.

Helpful Hints









VW Alternator Conversion Wiring

For an internally regulated alternator to operate, the D+ terminal must be wired to the negative side of a warning light bulb. A standard, incandecsent light bulb must be used. An LED light does not draw enough current to turn on the regulator in the alternator. The positive side of the light bulb should be powered by a key hot circuit.
