hi again. It appears i may need a new alternator for my 95 model astro. Does anyone know of a decent aftermarket make/model or am i going to be limited to a refurbed original unit? Is it wise/workable to put an overated alternator on there ie one that throws out more than the original. I wish to install a dvd player and remote screens etc. Would a dual battery system be advisable?

Cheers,

Biz

Hi bizjer

The standard alternator for the vans is 105 amps. I bought a Bosch brand new with a 2 year warranty and it has been running fine. If you want to go to a higher amp alternator, then you really need to do your home work on this as their has been a lot of talk about it here and mainly on the Old Forum on what the best set-up would be.

Here is an outside link with some information as well:

Hope this helps.:)
