The shop i get alternators from is out of stock,they expect to get stuff in tomorrow.
They are suggesting using a Bosch SB 200 amp J mount alternator,or maybe a Leece-Neville 270amp J mount,which may have a longer life than the bosch in a truck application.
In a motorhome application the Bosch should last a long,long time.

The Bosch is used on school buses,and 2 different semi truck companys use it as OEM equipment,puls John Deer uses it on farm equipment and so on..

The 270 L-N is used on fire trucks,ambulances etc,stuff with lots of load all the time.

We have had great service life out of the Leece neville units on trucks. That's the way I'd go. It's a Bluebird after all.
