Smile WTB Alternator....Age old question.....

Well here it is again......Does anyone have a alternator or leads on one for the 70 rescuer ??

I know Richard had some trouble earlier this summer finding one.....but just thought I would throw it out there again......

And I cant get the one I have rebuilt.....because....there is not one there to rebuild.....

I have called about 6 differant Cadillac recyclers here in Calif...but no one seems to have one.....

As always.......Any thoughts would be appreciated....

Jim

I purchased one off eBay but it will need to be rebuilt and would be happy to send it to you.

Do you have all the brackets?

You can also check with Carl or Dale at C-W Coach in Cincinnatti. I would be surprised if they didn't have one.
