Alternator for a DT466

Looking around here best I can find around her eis from Napa at 160amp for $250. Need one that does the job for the bus but not for charging things while running other than the starter batteries.

Anyone know where to find one? Rebuilts? Trusted sources? tips, advice, suggestions?

Re: Alternator for a DT466

There are many many alternators on Ebay for about $100 plus shipping. Alternators are chosen by the service needs not applications. Large high output units are mostly for egos and not standard duty. The high output units charge just a bit faster and higher rate, and a standard rate is good for about any need.
Large alternators with big bearings are the good units. Look for any unit that looks the same. Ya can go to an alternator/ generator rebuilder for advice.
Truck salvage yards have good units for cheap............. Frank

Re: Alternator for a DT466

Of the 5 skoolies iv'e owned, all but one of them used the same alternator. A leece Neville. These are very common have many different amp ratings. Ebay is one of the cheapest places i've found alternators.
