3G Alternator

Alternator died during the installation of the AC unit. I didn't want to put in the correct underpowered one. I hit the Pick-a-Part on Extension and Main in Mesa, Az. I found a 3g alternator in a 1996 Taurus. Pulled it and paid $34. One the way home I took it to Autozone and they tested it for no charge. Alternator was good! Sourced a fuse and holder from Napa. Sourced a carne asada burrito from Filliberto's and went to change it out on the truck.

It was simple, the alternator bolts to the same bracket. The pulley was swapped from the serpentine back to the V belt.
