Doug Foster is about 100 miles away on Mt Desert Island. I sent him an email and included your cell number.
He's know for hoarding spares. Hopefully he can help you out somehow.

I may have one. Not positive however...

Bruce Fowler who runs/organizes the Winter Romp is in waterville and that guys HAS GOT CONNECTIONS. ha. If anyone can source one right there he can. Also there are some others near by in the DELRC (down east Land Rover club)

I'll send an email out to the club now. I have a meeting in the morning but after about 10:30 I'm available if I can help. I didn't have plans to come to waterville.... However if really needed I can and will.

Bruce@winterromp.org

Searching for a phone number....

The waterville grand hotel right by the highway is decent and where most of us stay when at winter romp.

Oh and almost everyone in Waterville knows of Bruce. Hell he owns like half the town.

Really.

Ask around - you'll find him.

Excellent! Good to hear.

I'm still willing to take a ride if needed. I do have one - unknown condition but parted out truck was low miles and motor was clean.

Bruce probably has one that would work in a pinch with a pulley swap and Advanced Auto can probably order a new one and have it delivered/ready for you.

I had nice shiny new one on the shelf and took it with me. Pretty sure he didn't need it.

Some things are difficult for even Bruce to bodge.

However, if you needed waders to recover your truck…….Bruce had them!

Matt is the Man! He pulled one out for me. Interesting ride up and back from Bruce's. Periodically ithe alternator spiked 18volts or pegged itself there.
Out on the trail it behaved perfectly!
Interesting first day on the trails with many many hours spent recovering a Toyota that broke through ice.
Many lessons learned.

Had alternator rebuilt and it's running great.
Now that's tempting fate....
