Patent Number: 7,078,836

Title: Alternator for a vehicle

Abstract: In a side-mount type vehicle alternator, the mounting faces of a larger stay and a smaller stay are arranged such that the fictive line, which runs through the center of a mounting hole on the mounting face of the larger stay and the center of the mounting hole on the mounting face of the smaller stay, is on the outside of an outermost surface of a front frame and a rear frame. Thus, the alternator is lifted up from an engine bracket and it is possible to make a large space. Hot air being exhausted from exhaust windows flows smoothly to the outside of the space.
