If you get sick of fiddling with that crusty old alternator do yourself a favor and get one of these 160 amp high output ones. I have one and xbmwguy Frank gets the credit for finding these on ebay.

There is no core charge and they are rebuilt from a Valeo alternator. They put bigger everything inside it and even with 4 AC fans running full blast during S. Florida summers, headlights on, etc, the thing shows 13.5 volts charging at idle speed. A stock 90 amp one can't do that.
It's a really fantastic alternator and they have their phone number in their ebay ad so you can call them go from there.

I have to say it's amazing what the sun has done to the dashboard in your car and humidity or whatever has done to corrode the outside of the engine case.
You have quite a project there... good luck with it!
