well me and the famous ray finally got the alternator in but the old one was a B!tCh to get out. Cant tell u what we used but we got it without having to take off the motor mount and moving the motor. Now just got to put the belt back on.

Did you get the belt on?

I would have to say guys that the alternator on a SPI is actually harder than the Zetec motor ... unless you lift up the motor ... then it is flipped.

He did ... just has the car turning off on him ... But he checked the Starter, Alternator, and Battery at AutoZone and all was good there. I was thinking he could check his Neg Cable (Pigtail) or even the ground wires for rust or damage. ... Also maybe letting the car idle for long periods of time to recharge the system. Almost fixed.

I really think it's your negative cable ... I had that problem once and that was the culprit. ... you can get a new one at auto zone for a little under 20 bucks with the right kind of ends and all. ... You know I might have a spare one ... I will let you know.
