They are OK, but just a standard Alternator.
Contact starterman on here, I,m sure he can sell you one cheaper

Worth getting a genuine denso version. They are regularly for sale on fleabay for 70-80. Occasionally rather less.
The copies are not as well made, and have much shorter life.

I have to say that is a load of pony. A genuine Denso alternator, and I mean a genuine one is more than that and the aftermarket ones that I sell are excellent quality. I do hate people talking about stuff they know nothing about.

No offence intended.. But I have 2 genuine denso's on my old cars. I paid 40 a pop for each a good few years ago. They were from a seller, like so often, had a load of them, guessing a clearance of some description. I have checked them carefully and am certain they are genuine.
Likewise I know of 2 people who bought copies, both died within a year.

Undoubtedly there are some quality aftermarket ones about, but equally many iffy ones from iffy sellers who disappear at the first sniff of an issue.

If I needed another I would happily buy one from you based on what others have said about the ones you sell.
