    Your local dealer. But...you'll need to check if any of the electrical items are still available. Last time I worked at a dealer was 2004.

    And there was at least a couple of dozens more at the shop when I got mine. But maybe 5 or 6 years ago

      Guess I am lucky in that we have an alternator/starter shop in a nearby town that takes care of my old stuff. He replaces the factory 38 amp innards with 60 amp. Paints everything up nice. About $90 out the door.

        Turns out, just removing all of the metal washers, and using just the plastic ones, turned into a +14V battery CHARGING drive!! The goof that sold me the Alternator should HAVE known not to ship it out like it was, but?
        All good in the A12 hood!
        Startup- little nervous

        May risk it, take it go get some GAS! Only live once.... 20210224_162407.jpg
        Oh yeah, all 6 open wide up! Even ran the HEAT with no.Ammeter drop! Yep THE AMMETER. Thanks to Tallants Hot Rods of KC for R&R the FUEL guage send unit.

        No sir.. There was a speed shop here in Spindependence, round 30/35 yrs ago. I hung out there in my insane teen years, one side did only electrical, starters charging etc. Used to take many an E body or my 68 R/T Charger..
        Then I learned how to (when a turn signal switch failed) buy the ol toggle switches, one for tail lights, one for "BOO Switch", etc. So many jumper wires...Jesus, now at 51 I can R&R any dash harness in about an hour. All those cars & years, Id never had an alternator like this one. Too wrapped up in tuning Holley 2300's..LoL
        Its all good now. Thanks to all who gave me the help!
        I have BOXES of assorted plastic & rubber washers now!
