I guess I should just run into the parts store and compare the two.
but being on the same eng isnt surefire that theyre the same. cuz its still 2 different bodies all together. the eng harness' are different, so the output wire and regulator harness may need to be in a different location. but as far as the actual mounting, same casing.
so ya, best thing to do atr this point would be to compare ones at the parts store.
and should it happen to be a different clocking, take note of the location on the wire locations.
cuz i have 140 from a cadillac on my olds that has a different clocking than the original. but the harness had plenty of room to safely connect.
I'm not worried about making any sort of extensions, I mess with wiring at work. IIRC, I think I have a few extra GM alternator plugs sitting around in my toolbox.
