^^^ If you have a poor or intermittent ground you will have the same problem with the new alternator and you can kill your brand new one. If you do the checks I mentioned you will be able to isolate the cause of failure.

If you are sick of fucking with it I will be back in town Tuesday and can take a look at your car that afternoon.

You're welcome to come check out my garbage. You might dig it. See where that sanden 709 ended up.

The engine is thoroughly grounded, though I will test it to be sure.

I tested the engine and alternator ground to the chassis and it seemed normal.

I'll try slapping in a autozone 3g.

Was there a high amp small case 3g offered by ford on anything or is 95amp the most I can get for a factory offering with the 7 inch mount?

Which model has 130 amp with the 7 inch mount spacing? I know the E350 had 130 amp version but with 8.25 spacing.

I was running a 95 contour 130 amp 3g on my fox, i think it was the one with a 3.5L. Had to index the mounting holes differently and grind the mounting bracket a bit to get it to fit.

Contour isn't right.

After lots of digging, mid 90s taurus with the 3.0 ohv v6 or 1995 mustang 5.0 should work. Both have 130 amp 3g with 7 inch mount spacing.
