      Comments about ToughOne Alternator - Remanufactured - 78 Amps:

      I wanted an Alternator that had proper amp's and reliable. I believe the "Tough One" is just that. I chose "Advance Auto" because I have purchased and received many Auto part's from them, both by delivery and picked up in Store without a hassle and with courtesy from employee's.

            • Q:

              Is this a positive or negative ground alternator?

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Thus, any positive-ground car must be converted to negative-ground before an alternator can be installed. Unless positive-ground equipment has been added, the change is trivial. A quick internet search will provide lots of information on positive-to-negative ground conversions. A final, very minor, consideration applies to early Bugeyes that have the ignition coil mounted on the generator. The coil obviously will have to be relocated.
