I just completed a G3 alternator swap and now my engine seems to be not firing quite right. Can changing to a 130A alternator affect this?
When I did this swap, I got mine out of a '95 thunderbird with a 3.8 liter motor at the local "pick n pull" for like $28. You could go either way, new or used but it's a lot cheaper if you just get one out of a donor car. The alternators out of the '94-'97 thunderbirds should work just fine. You just have to play with the pulley to get it to line up so that it doesn't squeal. And make sure it has the 3.liter engine.Just curious to know if you pulled the alternator from another car or you purchased a new alternator. I'm contemplating the same swap, and I'm curious to know what alternators people are using. Thanks!
