I don't think you can get an alternator mounted on the rear lower pad to work on the 14A.
The nose gear structure will be in the way for the larger alternators. Maybe the SD 8 will fit. You also could have problems with running the fuel line from the firewall to the pump.
The issues I listed in my prior post exist whether you have any alternator installed on the back or not. The interference is with the oil filter. The top mounted alternator works fine with the Van's firewall setup.
