Unbelievable how tough these alternators are...30 years for mine??? No american car would ever have an alternator last that long...
Yes, to be able to get 5 years out of an American alternator is considered to be "good". For a "tweaked" American alternator, the expected life span goes down, considerably. This is why I went with Bosch.

Obviously, I can't tell anyone that my new alternator is going to last 30 years, like the original, there just isn't enough track record on these alternators to be able to do that.....but it is Bosch....and they are word renowned for their electrical pieces.

Another one of the really great things about what I'm doing (that I haven't mentioned) is that if my alternator goes bad (comes with a 2 year warranty), all people need to do is order the rebuilt exchange alternator from Bosch (~$350), swap out my custom housing onto the rebuilt unit, and then install the housing from the rebuilt unit onto the "core". Instant rebuilt alternator with a "core" to turn back in! (This takes about 1/2 hour.)

If the kids keep breaking a crowbar in the sandbox, sometimes it is easier to just give them a stronger crowbar, instead of trying to figure out what they are doing in the sandbox.

Greg Brown.
Can't say enough about the guy.
Spoke to Mary about shipping date, and asked if Greg was at hand for a quick tech question.
He wasn't at hand but came in anyway and took my call. Helped with my two technical questions and also said he was sending out new belts with the units for he didn't want any issues. I was going to change out the belt and his new alternator after the thaw, but he was a step ahead.
Can't say enough about the guy.

Pm sent, had enough of the charging issues, this looks like a great deal. I am not sure how to get hold of Mary as this is an overseas order.
Merry Xmas.

Best way is to email Mary.

When Mary ships, the toughest part of the installation is the actual opening of the package.

While I'm not positive, I'm pretty sure she starts with a box, but there's so much tape involved (several different types), you can't really tell....and it probably isn't really necessary.

I tease her that if the world as we know it came to an end and there were only cockroaches left, they would be living in her boxes.
