Does anybody in Olympia have a spare alternator I could borrow to get home? Just got stranded on our way to Sequim.

With a minimum of tools and a couple of bolts and some punched steel bar from a hardware store, I installed a Delcotron on my 83 1/2 in Ely, Nevada on a Sunday morning. Have seen no reason to go back to Bosch since.

Wildthings, good to have options..........
Can you give more specifics, amps, model, from what model line is the alternator from, plug configuration.
What is the advantage over a Bosch unit?

Sorry I don't know the details at this moment and have to run. Can get them for you this evening if you are still interested. The advantage is availability.
