PA Performance 200A 3G Alternator Kit (1611MM7HO)

(I'm sorry, I meant 1611MMK7HO) Can anyone confirm that this is the correct kit for an '89 LSC?
Thanks, folks.

I would prefer something which can be readily replaced or serviced. I think the best choice would be a Fox Mustang 302 bracket, and the 3G alternator to fit that. I've read of that somewhere on the Corral forum I think. I'd believe the Mustang application parts would be more available, maybe a little cheaper too. The mid 90's 3G I got from a Taurus was about $25 used, it worked and cost me $10 to have it checked and re-clocked by a local shop. I cut the ear off myself, and the regulator is internal, so the stock voltage regulator is bypassed. That's the version Art described here.

Its on LincolnsOnline. "3G Swap Armond Style" - Clear and professional looking. Link Here

I actually used multiple write-ups for additional pictures and instructions, just to make sure I got everything correct.

Ah, very good, I saw it there when I used to spend more time online. That's the best how to write-up available.

I was worried about just keeping the old wiring and not adding a new power wire, but I also had plans to rewire my engine anyway. I've driven probably 20,000 miles since doing the swap, and I don't have any added circuits. So the stock power wire is adequate unless something big is added.
