	Rather than buying a new alternator, might I suggest getting the
current one rebuilt?  I replaced the alt on the GF's '86 5K for the tune
of $250.  When the one on my car went, I did some investigating, and
found a local shop that rebuilt mine in less than 3 hours, and it's been
humming along just fine ever since.  Cost less than $100.
