    Great Service, Quality And Price!
    I looked everywhere for this rare alternator. It is an upgrade from my stick 55amp version in my 77 VW bus. This has the proper Aircooled housing to keep the inside cool due to the location near the hot cylinder heads. Don't use anything other than this model. It is perfect and it was even checked out my my local rebuilder of alternators - he was impressed that I was able to find it for so cheap and of great quality. He had trouble finding the parts to rebuild mine so he was glad I found another - although he lost my business.
