Hey, I'm a bit suss on the alternator in my EL V8. It was working, but it wasn't always reliably charging, but it seemed ok after I fixed up the main charge lead. I want to make sure that my charging system is right up to scratch when I get my car back on the road, so I'm just wondering if I can pull down the alternator and check it all out inside, or weather I'm better off to get an auto elec to do that? I'm also interested to know what a reco, remanufactured, or brand new and I geuss even 2nd hand alternator is worth. It's the mitsubishi type with the squirrel cage type case that looks like the 6 cylinder one. Any advice is appreciated. Also, as an aside, I removed the pulley, and the 4 screws that were behind it were SO tight that I couldn't undo them and they will round off. Any ideas to get them out would also be appreciated.
