Cheaper alternator source?

Following my escapade in Maine at the Winter Romp pre run, where my alternators love of pushing out 18volts came in second best to a sunk Toyota, I tracked down a link saved from a thread here.
Can't find the thread but this MM 100amp unit looks very much lije it will work with my 95d1 serp engine
http://www.jackssmallengines.com/Pro...ALU0008/253863

Does anyone have the link to that thread or alternatively has used this alternator on their Rover engine?
Thanks

Action didn't work out for me.

Just picked up my rebuilt unit from http://www.chelmsfordautoelectric.com/about.nxg who are located northwest of Boston not far from the NH border. Great shop.

starter

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place to rebuild a starter?
Local Cape Cod shop could not fix without parts?

Check in with Badger. He might know someone local.

I just keep a few used ones on the shelf starter and alternator that I grab at the junk yard or one of the vendors when they have a over stock special on them. Usually less than $30 each and I generally get at least 3-4 years of service out of them.

If I'm going on a long trip I usually throw one of each in the back. When I went to pick up my 110 I had one of each in my checked bag lol.
