Lot of variables, many of the decisions have to be made on-site. Generally, new alternators don't come with a pulley, so you have to hope you can move the Foton pulley to the new alternator. Then you have to hope the new alternator will bolt directly onto the Foton bracket. If not, some bracket alteration may be necessary. And finally, it's not likely the Foton belt will be the right size. A new belt will have to be purchased and installed. Some folks who do this conversion get link belts (click on link below), which generally takes the worry out of getting the right size the first time.

I changed my Jinma 304 to a Delco 12Si alternator because I needed the extra ampacity to run additional work lights and an inverter. If you don't need the additional capacity, I'd just replace with the OEM alternator. If you want additional capacity, then go with the 12Si Delco. It's an easy conversion if you're handy with tools and can make your own mounting bracket if needed.

thank you, is the wiring the same? pretty handy with wrenching and brackets, but not real knowledgeable with wiring/electrical stuff.

Did you have an unusually short lived original alternator?

If the answer is the alternator life was not particularly short I find the KISS (keep it simple stupid) approach is best for me, keeps me out of trouble. Just slap the another one of the same in and move on.

Or if you love to tinker have at it Smile
