Cool beans......that'* a good way to go. Probably the best option besides DP. It will still have the same bearing problem eventually, but probably not as soon as most cheapo aftermarkets.

One thing to remember also is the a/c clutch has a history of going bad on these cars. I know your voltages were low and its obvious that you need a new altinator but for everone else keep it in mind. Also if you should ever have one of these go bad and the dealership say the clutch can't be replaced by itself, well it can. Just a little FYI sounds like your headed in the right direction.

Gunk Foamy Engine Brite. Follow the directions on the can. Simple green would be for light oil residue. Won't cut grease or heavy buildup in corners.
