    If it is your alternator, maybe do some searching around and find a place that also does alternator repairs. I know where I live I'm fortunate enough to have a alternator and starter repair shop.

    Can be much cheaper and you can even give the amps a bump (for stereo and such)

    Might as well replace the timing belt while you have it all torn apart

    on the positive side, we began work on my buddies '69 camaro today, we are trying to take our time and do it right, it will be a learning experience for us both, we have a guy that had to build one of these from the ground up to help along the way, any tips on these things? we're working on getting the doghouse off right now... its kinda a pain. lol
