Help With Alternator for a 97

My alternator is on it downward spiral. I have check through past post, but didnt find what I am looking for. For all you '97, what alternator are you using, factory or aftermarket? I saw rover connection has a 120 amp for $295, mean green 200 amp for $375. Which one is best one to get? What the difference, do I need the more amps? Is the MG a direct bolt replacement? Whats the best place to get new one from? I am up for any suggestion or comments.

Thanks,

David

I tried going down the Mean Green road a bit but got fed up with there customer service and needed an alt quick, so I got mine at the local autoparts store, It wasn't too exspensive but I have not used it at all yet (my truck is still broke from last year). But it looks good!

David, here's what i did. Found a reputable electric shop that knows magnetti marelli(sp) alternators and had it rebuilt. Assuming the stator is still ok(not burnt) the only parts to be replaced are bearings, diodes, regulator and brushes...one day job and $150 bucks...

I had my alternator rebuilt about two years ago on my 97 by a local shop for $100 and I have not had any problems with it since. I would avoid Mean Green alternators; I used one for a wile and was not happy with it. For the price you can find something better.

I have had nothing but joy from my mean green alternator. Been about a year and works perfectly.
