My, my, aren't you being a bit harsh? don't you think!
You are the last one I would have expected comments of this nature!
Take care my friend; I was very sorry to read what you had to say,
Have a great weekend,

Would you mind explaining how to "just slap" one on? At the very least,
the old VR has to be gutted and tapped into, since it is also the brush
I realize it "can" be done, and is one way to get a good 14.5 volts if
you need it, but it is not a trivial exercise - and certainly shouldn't
be necessary when one has bought a fancy alternator touted to overcome
the voltage/current issues people run into with some of these cars.
