I am trying to find out if a 90A bosch alternator was ever offered on A2
diesels with power steering. I am currently running a 65A bosch on my
1.6TD vanagon using the Jetta mounts. I have added an A2 Jetta power
steering pump which works well using a second pulley on the water pump. I
like that it gives me two belts on the water pump. I also use the tach, so
would prefer to keep the pulley size the same (but could re-calibrate the tach
if I had to).I need either a stock 90A to fit this setup, or to make one...
I have a 90A Bosch from the Vanagon ('88), and a spare 65A Jetta TD
alternator. The 90A isn't a direct fit on the Jetta bracket. Is there a way to
merge these two units to make a 90A using the front plate from the 65A?
'88 Westy 1.6TD 5 speed
'85 Jetta Diesel 1.6NA
