Hi I have a 1986 E 150 300ci 6cyl engine. I needed to replace the alternator and bought a new Napa alternator. That alternator lasted about 5 months before it started to fail. The dash gauge would start to flicker and sometimes swing to the left to discharge then back to charge again. It had a warranty so I got another and after about 3 months the same thing happened.
What's out there on the market that is a reliable alternator? I try and stay away from remanufactured one's but Napa has been the only alternator I found that sold as "new". All others for that year van are reman. Anyone have any experience with Wilson alternators? I've heard they are a good brand but the only one I can find for my van is a reman. one.
