I worked for "Acme Generator Supply" years ago and learned to rebuild alternators. I have three SAABs and am in to process of replacing an alternator on my wife's 9-5 Arc. As you know, it's a bear to do this job. I did it on my Aero last spring and did not enjoy it one bit. I don't want to have to do it again so want to be absolutely sure to get a reliable unit. If I rebuild it myself, I know I'll do a good job. I have the equipment. The problem is that I can't find a parts supplier. The local auto store can get parts but with their markup, I might as well get a rebuilt Bosch unit. If I can find a reliable supplier I might consider setting up a side business rebuilding alternators and specialize in SAAB units.
