    I have a 1985 FJ60 2f being transplanted into an FJ40. One of the last pieces of the puzzle is the alternator is not working. I have not found anywhere that I can buy one that has an internal regulator. Before I have the old one rebuilt anyone know a source to buy a new / rebuilt one.

    Thank you.

    Buy an alternator for a 1990 Land Cruiser (3FE) and order the conversion harness from @Coolerman !

    Been running this setup over 10K miles with no complaints!

    Thanks for the response! Is this a cheaper way to go than having my old one rebuilt? What would you estimate you have in yours? Thanks!

    Much cheaper, I was quoted $175 and 3 week turnaround on a local rebuild...

    Alternator is around $80 and the harness was around $25 shipped if I remember correctly!

    @Coolerman is a little South of Lexington, KY so the post office should be able to get you the plug and harness rather quickly if he has one made up!

    They are not it seems, it has shown a 1 day delay for a month. I tried to order one and got a message a day later they are not available or in stock. Maybe someone else will have better luck.

    Crap, that's a bummer. They also appear to be NLA at Toyota too. Post up in the classifieds. Somebody has to have one sitting around.

    Well........ Found the Alternator that Ian recommended. Wanted to make sure the wiring adapter is available before ordering. Another snag, not getting any responses from @Coolerman about the harness..

    Wadesters and I connected. I have the connector he needs from Coolerman that I will not use. He should have it by Thursday.
    FYI the thread for the conversion is here Alternator altering

    May be as simple and cheap as replacing the voltage regulator.
