Random help is good to have. My friend just got back from a trip up to inuvik - on the way back the alternator bit the dust in Watson lake. Mechanic said five days for new alt. Delivered from vancouver!
Another westy saw them at the shop and stopped.. He showed them how to take the alt apart and clean it up good enough to get them back to Vancouver. I'm always surprised at how many vanagons i see while on road trips, it's always a comforting thought to not be too rare.
