Thanks alot, I will disconnect that sucker so I don't melt any metal lol.
I guess it doesn't hurt to buy a new alternator. I mean, my stingers for my stereo system hold a charge for about 2-3 minutes with the music on low and the car off. If the stingers are in good condition than that must be the alternator not pulling enough power. Plus the interior lights go dim with the bass jumping.

I still do it quite often for numbers matching type restorations on alternators and starters, and even keep my eyes peeled for good cores at swap meets, some of the more particular cases are getting harder to find. Funny if you walk into a chain store like Autozone or Oreily's, you get strange looks from the counter people when you ask for rebuild kits. I go to Napa and they have what I need or can get it in a day, without all the strange looks. Mostly middle aged men working there that already know exactly what I'm doing.

I bought mine from Checkers. Got the lifetime warranty. Good thing I did. I had to replace mine. That is two stories in itself. I installed a capacitor. Made a world of difference in both the alternator and the system. I will post my sig to give you an idea of what i have done to mine stereo wise. No dimming, no draining. Cheapest cap Fry's sold...
