    ya, but he's been there a long time, all word of mouth; as you can see no big fancy advertising, one man show and the inside is just a big open room with alternators and starters lined up.

    I'm sure you are happy with your decision now. Plus you have a better until than a parts store rebuild.

    Well this is frustrating. I put the alternator back on and it is still doing the same thing; the volt meter on the dash just sits and fluctuates from 14 - 16 volts at a very uniform pace, not fast just a steady back and forth (14 is the center of the gauge). I put a volt meter on the pos side of the alternator and grounded to see if it fluctuates also - it doesn't. It is a steady 14.46v. The battery with the engine off is 12.something. any thoughts?

    Don't think so because at night when the lights are on, they pulse from bright to dim, just a little, you about have to look for it to be noticeable, but once you see it, it is pretty obvious. So, I think the gauge is responding correctly. Well, not to mess this thread up; but I put a full charge on the battery and now the gauge is steady, I am thinking the battery may be getting weak.
