I was looking in the wiring diagram trying to get my brake lights working on my stupid wagon and in the 61 shop manual I see a listing for "alternator".
In the charging/starting system section it says it is a 60 amp Leece Neville. It also shows a 50 amp Bosch generator and a 40 Amp Delco Remy generator as optional and the standard six banger 30 amp Ford and V8 35 amp Ford generators which I thought were the only two types.
What 1961 full sized Fords did an alternator come on? I have seen cop cars that still had generators in 62.
the Leese-Neville alternator was an option around that time. A friend of mine who had a gas station got a new Ford tow truck during that time period and I can remember him calling my attention to the L-N alternator he got to help run the extra stuff on the tow rig.
