You are watching: How much does an alternator weigh


Quick question... Ns cant find a website that would tell me how much a Denso alt would certainly weigh. I have checked pepboys/autozone etc for one alt and there alt weighs between 13-15pnds.So, just how much does a Denso alt weigh ?

Depends ~ above the output, the 120amp is a good 1/2" or so bigger in diameter 보다 the 90 amp. It"s not simply an overdriven 90. Ns imagine the 160 is the exact same deal. Why does it matter?

Well civilization are saying that its light weight. I simply wanted to know exactly how much much less the denso weighed contrasted to lets say a bosch. Ns was never a denso guy , so just fishing for information on it. No biggie

Ahh, yeah, i dunno. Lock don"t use long-term magnets in them, it"s every copper and also steel, ns wouldn"t think the load is going to be any different. It"s just every time I"ve supplied a Bosch, it"s failure on me. Heck, mine old "90 Van, ns bought that thing from a TD fanatic, and saw the Bosch alternator in it, instantly went come the JY and grabbed a 120amp Nippy, yet didn"t feel choose swapping it in. So i left the Nippy in the back of the van. No 3 mainly later, ns was ~ above the side of the roadway switching alternators because the Bosch failed. Heh..It"s really simply the size of the unit that"s less, no so much the weight.

Unfortunately, my digital scale only goes approximately 6 lbs. So ns weighed them both through my crappy toilet scale. Both factory 90 amp units: the Denso was around 9 lbs and the Bosch approximately 12.
