5-wire Delco DN640 with two plugs is obsolete but can be replaced by any 2-wire unit with left hand mounting for the Vauxhall OHC engine by altering the wiring at the alternator.

Wires to keep are the thick brown cable (+) and the alternator warning lamp wire (brown+yellow). The thin brown wire isn't needed and can be taped up; short loop of brown+yellow wire can be deleted.

Later 2-wire DN460 or Lucas 17/18ACR should fit - make sure unit comes with pulley and fan in either case. Lucas ACR units can be changed from right hand to left hand.
