Re: [T3] type 3 alternators


I've never had a generator fail on me (oops, that's asking for trouble), but
total mileages over here tend to be lower than in the USA, and I've no fancy
electrical gadgets such as a radio (let alone a stereo one!).  I don't know if
the Type 3s I've bought secondhand have had generators replaced, but if not I've
increased them by about 50,000 miles each time without problems apart from a new
regulator in two of my T3s at about 80,000 miles.
