   I put the Autozone alternator in my '72B.  Its a re-built Lucas 16ACR as 
original, and came with a lifetime replacement warrenty, of course you have to 
use your old pully/fan.
   So far so good ( 4 months old).

>I'm shopping for a new alternator since mine just bit the dust.  Here's what
I've found:

1)  Moss, VB, etc. offers alternators in the $150 range.  Remanufactured
with return of the old part expected.

2)  NAPA has them for $96.  Remanufactured LUCAS alternators, done by Bosch.

3)  Autozone has them for $65.  No details on these at all.

So...does anyone know what gives here?  Why the huge difference in cost from
one supplier to another?  I have to wonder about the Autozone part in

I went ahead and ordered one from Autozone anyway.  I can always return it
(or not even take it out of the store) if I'm not satisfied.  If it's not
OE, I can at least use it for now then keep it as a back is a
little tight right now.  Autozone also offers a lifetime warranty on it, so
if it blows up, they replace it.

Best Regards,
