need new alternator, starter, distributor assembly

So my truck stalled in Granby this weekend (about 70 Kms from home in Montreal). So I had a guy check it, the problem looks electrical (no surprise there, it had stalled a few times before, but this time it did not restart). It seems that oil leaks on the starter likely killed the wiring.

Anyway, I wanted to do some part changes anyway, since the truck has 160 000 Kms (100 000 miles). So while I'm at it: new (used or rebuilt) alternator, starter, distributor assembly. I wanted to check part numbers with the forum. I have a 1994 NAS D-90 3.9L. There seems to be a lot of numbers for the same or equivalent parts. Anyone have a list of these ?
  • Alternator AMR4247 or LUCAS LRB 284
  • Starter RTC6061N, PRC5658, ERR6087, ERR6087E,ESR2191,ESR2192 or Bosh 0-001-110-120, Bosh 0001110120 or EMS 17705N,
  • Distributor assembly ERR5209 (want to switch to remote amplifier)

There is a list on the Ottawa valley site (great site BTW):

http://www.ovlr.org/OVLR.alt.parts.html

Best prices found so far is 75$ on eBay for starter, 80$ for alternator and 255 for distributor assembly, but I'm still shopping...

I can get a starter and a alternator from a scrap yard nearby from a 2004 Disco for 100$ each (Canadian), but I need to find out if they fir first. I will keep the old ones and get them rebuilt, so I have them for my expedition backup kit...

I would look for a better or higher amp alternator and starter. I have heard good things about Mean Green.

I tried this

I had done this on my last D90. I had a Powerline 190A, I think (Ford) alternator. 190A and other gizmos changed to adapt for this. In the end, I'm not reallly sure it's worth it on a dual battery setup unless I want to do extreeme winching (which I don't really).

I went to their site (Mean Green) and they are very expensive compared to OEM.

Since I think I will stick with the 3.9L engine in my D90, I think I will want to keep a 100A alternator. I looked at a 300TDI swap and for the price, it will take too long to make up the cost on fuel savings.

If you buy shit alternators and starters then don't last and will cause more headaches. Also, not reason to believe there is anything wrong with your distributor. Maybe the vacuum advance, but so long as a money does not pull up hard on the rotor, they seem to last forever.

So buy a genuine or OEM starter and a magnito merelli [sic] alternator and you should be good to go.

$225 new
Lifetime warranty
Free shipping
http://ferraris.server273.com/RoverV8.html (it's BritishStarters.com)

They are very dependable NiponDenso starters. The weak point in them are the solenoid contacts, but you can buy them locally for less than $20 and keep them on hand. They are very easy to swap out.

Great

Yes, these look nice. And the lifetime warranty is excellent, since I want to keep my truck for 20-25 years (when I'll be too old to drive). And the price seems acceptable. Now I'm still needed an alternator !

I recently replaced my 3.9L with a 300tdi and have the V8 parts sitting in my garage. I have a relatively new starter, alternator and, well, the distributor was working when pulled. I may be able to use the alternator as a spare on the 300tdi, it's very similar (one mounting tang different - I may be able to swap the rear housing on it to make it work) but I don't need the starter or distributor..

Any idea what you would be looking to get for them ?

Of course, shipping would be extra. I would want it sent by USPS, this way I avoid customs.

Has anyone given thought to having the alternator re-fab at a armature shop? I have heards good things about going this route to increase power and not increase price.

I got a price of 250$ for a rebuild. Too much, A new unit can be around 100$. Got one at 95GBP at theX-mod.com
