    My son has a 92 Hatch with a B16a swap in it
    I think his alternator just went out and I need to know what kind of alternator do I buy for it... like at autozone or kragens

    he said it is important to know that it is OBD1

    can you help me?
    I need to know what to ask for when I go to the auto parts store to buy the new alternator

    Thanks a bunch!
    Steve

    You'll probably want to ask for a distributor from a pre-96 Del Sol VTEC. As far as I know that's the only car that had a B16 in the US before the 99-00 Civic Si. OBD2 started in 96, so you should be safe asking for one that's pre-96...

    thanks for all the quick replies!
    you guys are great

    We put a different battery and it started but the battery light was on, then it died while he was driving it

    he had degreased the engine compartment and when he started the car a bunch of smoke came out of the alternator, that's the day it stopped working

    seriously... thanks again!

    haha, oops. sometimes you have to learn the hard way. ^_^

    edit: on that note, make sure when cleaning he stays away from the distributor also. that is an expensive and annoying part to have to replace.

    Woops! My bad! :mellow:

    Same thing applies though, for replacement parts look into the pre-96 Del Sol VTEC...

    I have had nothing but bad luck out of Autozone's electrical parts. Try for a NAPA. Yeah the have a lifetime warranty, but you will spend your lifetime replacing them!
