I bought a large case 6G alternator (claims to be 200A) from "eagleautoelectric" on Ebay.
Had it for a month or so now, and so far it seems to be performing well.
It is less expensive than buying an OEM Motorcraft... which would be a re-man alternator anyways.
Is it really 200A? Who really knows where that rating comes from... while I do have a clamp-on DC ammeter, I'm not about to torture test it to find out.
I know as soon as I installed it, it was putting out 110A at idle, versus the 80A that my intermittent small case 6G was doing... so that was an improvement.
Sure, there are more expensive alternators available... but it doesn't sound like you need to go down that road.
Price was right for me to give it a try. Fixed the alternator I pulled off, so I have a spare if this one goes sideways.
