You are watching: How much does an alternator weigh


Quick question... Ns cant discover a website that would tell me how much a Denso alt would weigh. I have checked pepboys/autozone and so on for an alt and also there alt weighs in between 13-15pnds.So, exactly how much does a Denso alt sweet ?

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

Well human being are saying the its irradiate weight. I simply wanted come know how much less the denso weighed compared to allows say a bosch. Ns was never a denso man , so simply fishing for information on it. No biggie

Ahh, yeah, i dunno. Lock don"t use permanent magnets in them, it"s every copper and also steel, i wouldn"t think the load is going come be any kind of different. It"s just every time I"ve used a Bosch, it"s failure on me. Heck, mine old "90 Van, ns bought that thing from a TD fanatic, and also saw the Bosch alternator in it, instantly went come the JY and also grabbed a 120amp Nippy, yet didn"t feel choose swapping that in. So ns left the Nippy in the ago of the van. Not 3 mainly later, i was top top the side of the road switching alternators due to the fact that the Bosch failed. Heh..It"s really simply the dimension of the unit that"s less, no so much the weight.

Unfortunately, my digital scale just goes approximately 6 lbs. So ns weighed lock both v my crappy toilet scale. Both manufacturing facility 90 amp units: the Denso was approximately 9 lbs and also the Bosch around 12.

Ahhh, ok !! So not a huuuuge load difference. I guess that comes down to the dimension of the alternators. I bet there is a big difference there...
