Finally finished putting the alternator in the car and got is started. The SJ alternator does just fit and does seem to charge properly. Had to get a longer belt to get over the larger pulley, 4PK698 belt did the job.

Hi Andy, good to hear you were successful in fitting the SJ alternator - I have ordered a longer belt, preparing to follow your lead!

Larger pulley... so less rpm? Is the output enough to keep things charged, even with all electric power users on?

HJ2 - seems to put out enough volts at idle with no load. Will check with load at the weekend.

Not much load on the elan's electrics, no heated seats, no heated front/rear windows, no electric seats, etc

KenS - it is a very tight fit, you need to undo the intermediate bearing to drop the drive shaft or remove the drive shaft. As the alternator pulley has an extra groove the belt goes on the inner grooves.
