Subject: Re: alternator replacement   1997 900 -2L


I found that even if you don't put it in yourself, you definely want to keep cycling two alternators through a rebuild shop. Saves tons over most other options. I got my first replacement via the EnglishSwedish junkyard I think they are in Alabama. It was cheaper to overnight the alternator (I was in a hurry) than any other option local to me. I paid $257 in 1999 for the Rebuilt, $50 Shipping and install. The rebuild at the shop was $65 the next time. This was for an 89 900 -Dan tom wrote: > Hi all, > A basic question here.
