    Thats not a Mack component- probably a Leece-Neville or other name brand. Take it off, take to any heavy truck parts shop or automotive electrical shop.

    That is what we did about a year ago with our Mack CF, and also needed to change out the V-belt for a larger Amp unit.

    Older CF's had a positive ground system. 1972 & 74 had a high temperature 140 amp Leece-Neville alternators as standard equipment. The 1979 came in Standard but was upgraded to a 200 amp that supported a 1500 watt - 120Volt lighting system. The reason for the "High Temperature" rating (different insulation on the windings) is because of the heat generation and lack of adequate air circulation when pumping.
