Finally i cant beleave its actually done....

after over 2 years of needing a new alt i finally replaced it today. grant come over and helped me get my butt in gear.

my old one the regulator was shot it was charging over 15volts all the time and brushes where toast and recently it has been rattling bad....

its so much nicer to have an alt that works right now!!!

I don't know what it is but I went through two NEW alternators in 2 years with my 2.3. And I've had my 4.0 for a month and already put a new one in.
