if you can wait until NEBF...we could do some alt swapping to see if they fit.

The mounting may be totally different between the L36 and L67. Just as it is with the L27 and L67s1.

I went with a 160amp from www.mralternator.com and SSEi95 has a 200amp from him. They work GREAT. No problems in 2 years.

The mounting is exactly the same between series 2 L36 and L67. I had both of mine sitting next to each other on my table, and they look identical, so identical I had to mark each one just to make sure.

If the 140 works on my L36 it will work just fine on yours.

I'm not sure.. My 97 Riviera and 00 Bonneville alternators looked TOTALLY different from eachother. So different I'm not sure they'd be interchangable or not..
