  2. you are right it is sad everything is imported....and china is so unreliable - i have a maytag washing maching from china that is rusting from the inside out!!! i should have kept the 18 year old one....it never rusted!!! i try not to buy anything from china ...but its so hard!!!! ed
  3. i wonder how successful a company would be to build a 100 percent american car these days? no china no mexico parts..... just usa parts.......??
  4. the box stores are a gamble....and that napa box if you notice reads reman in china on the bottom......so there goes your quality....... i see powermaster advertising new alternators......no reviews on them ????? cant find any....... thanks for all the responses ed
  5. well a lot of rebuilders just replace the bad parts and dont really check or referbush the rest of it...... and it depends where its being done as far as quality control ... it seems like there is no real shop that is known for excellent service all the time on these parts..... ed
  6. THANKS FOR THE IDEAS....... POWERMASTER MAKES A NEW ONE BUT CANT SEEM TO GET ANY REVIEWS ON THE LOW AMP ONE....... ED
  7. ANY ALTERNATOR BETTER QUALITY OUT THERE? THEY ALL CLAIM THEY ARE THE BEST!! I ONLY NEED THE 55AMP FORD ALTERNATOR BUT WANT TO GET ONE THAT IS REMANUIFACTURED WITH GOOD QUALITY PARTS..... ANY IDEAS? FOR A FORD 6 CYL MUSTANG NO HIGH OUTPUT THANKS ED

  11. well guys i drilled a hole where it looked good for the cable to go through and i found out i do not have a tube built in to guide a cable down into the frame rail ....i tried using a wire to see if i could get it through but that didnt work.....i put a nut on a string and sent that down to see if that would work with a magnet to try and find it.....didnt work...... there has to be some way to do this.....get something through so i can tie the cable to it and pull it up through the floor............ any ideas? the car is on jack stands dash is mostly out -- it need to get this done so i can put the dash back in...........never a dull moment here.......any ideas would be appreciated!! thanks ed
  12. the box on the vert is different than my coupe ....but it still helps on drilling the hole thanks again ed
