Re: another blown alt
That is a big bummer. When my original Alt started a slow death at about 150k miles, I wanted more, and a brainless installation. So, I ponied up the funds and bought Petroworks kit, with Alternator, mount, and wiring pigtail. So it was really plug and play. I've had it in there for a few months, no more dim head lights, and narry a problem other than a squeeling belt on occassion. I'd recommend that as a possible fix. I wouldn't bother with the original one.
Hope this helps
