as some of you are aware my alternator bit the big one and was a general pain in the preverbial

went out today and got a recon one from just commodore spares on south rd

$175.00 inc change over

rang around first

REPCO $298.00 (new)
sprint auto $214 RECO
motor traders $210 RECO
and the laugh and a half was HOLDEN $356.45 i nearly shat when he told me that. (new)

so if you need one get it from just commodore spares its a damn lot cheaper than anywhere else.

all they do is put a new regulator in if the bearings sound ok lol you got ripped, went through this a while ago. the only way you would come out on top is if the bearings where stuffed
