I will have to agree that new is better. However, the wife bought it and had installed by a friend who has a shop with a lift. He did both alt installs. Now i'm left wit trouble shooting the side effects of these installs. I don't have the a voltage leak detector so everything will have to be done with a test light and hand held voltage meter. Thanks for the wire diagram. I wont be removing the alternator if it has to be replaced the same fellow will do it. Now it has been brought to my attention that the cars computer may have to be reprogramed or reset to the factory settings. I have never heard of such a thing. But i'm an old school mechanic with little or no modern electronics to help me out. So i'm stuck with my freddie flintstone diagnostic tools. Being test light and jumper wires. Ill wait for this to be answered. Now I get to see why the car runs like shit, checking coils and spark plugs. Got to love it.
