but a  good rule of thumb is 
alternator  pulley size.  If the new,  higher output, alternator has a 
diameter  pulley than the  Corvair's then you will need a faster idle to 
the   alternator. 

As you mentioned, though, the Corvair fan/pulley must be moved to the  
replacement alternator. First for the correct rotation of the alternator  
cooling fan and second for the correct alignment of the fan belt entering and  
leaving. This keeps the belt on (better).
