    I've been told by a mechanic that the PO put the wrong alternator and belt on my '85 FJ60. Now if I was smart I would have asked him the kind I needed. However, I didn't I just blew it off for a while. I'm thinking I'll go ahead and put the "correct" one on. I called up CDan and found out their are two possibilities for my rig. I'm posting some pics of what I currently have. Anyone have any clues as to the "correct" alternator I should be using?

    The alternator "looks" OK, but looks can be deceiving.

    I found there's two that 'mechanically' fit my Nov 85 built "1986" FJ60.

    The 'fit test' is the field+exciter connector (two wire plug or 3 wire....mines two)
