Alternators 87/88?
B D Offline
What are the differances between the alternator for a 87 TC and an 88 TC? Is the wireing harness differant? I have a spare Alt for a 87 , I wanted to swap it on to the 88 as a test to see if the Alt on the 88 is bad.

Im not sure if they are different but i tried to do the same thing, and found that my 87 had the "old" mitsubishi i think alternator on it. The one with the alt output power plugged into the alt as opposed to the one with a stud and nut with a power wire coming from it. I ended up getting the 130amp from pa performance and am very happy i did.
