Good luck

Clem, thanks! Its a Leece Neville A0014871JB air cooled unit. I told the dealer to give me the core (I got to pay the core charge). My intention now is to get the bad one rebuilt and carry it as a spare so I can recover some of the cost later on. I am not bad at car alts so from the looks of it I may just try it on my own. I found part suppliers online so I can get voltage regs and diodes etc.

I have never worried about carrying a spare alternator because with a generator and inverter/charger(2) you can keep on going. I have driven probably a couple of thousand miles without the alternator. Now the starter is another story. I’ve usually got the generator running anyway for the AC.
Just a thought.

Point taken Clem. Maybe I can turn the spare alt into a starter lol (sell it). We will see.
