I think they are the same as what was used on VWs.

Here is a link to one, but I am sure there are many other vendors to choose from.

This is just the first one to pop up in my search.

and the cool thing about shopping there, is you can call him up and say, "I need one of those rubber thingies that covers the alternator wire" and he will send you one of what you need.

 

It does suck to bump that terminal with a wrench.

Would that be the Kingston Henery Hardware, Charlie?

They have an awesome fastener department...

edit: okay, sorry for the digression.  It is just exciting to see a post from my neighbor, Kuntacharlie... (who has owned his '71 since it was NEW!)

I'm pretty sure these boots are available as used on lawn mower engines...from what I remember reading here on FAQ, some time ago...but I can't find the thread

Yes that would be Kingston Henry Hardware. I upgraded my alternator to a bigger one that I got from a junk yard 318.  I needed one of those covers and found it at my local hardware.

One more source:  Snapper riding mowers.  That's where my replacement boots came from--the local Snapper dealer.
