That is sad, one time it took me 9 alternators from various parts stores until I gave up and bought one from the dealer.I should have gone there first.

If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly appreciate a 5
star rating now and I will still assist you after you have rated me
too if another question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you
until you rate me.
Thanks again, Ron
