@  TheBestJohn : (15 December 2014 - 12:49 PM) My alternator was pooched. I bought a used one from Troy and it's working flawlessly now. week before last I put it in... today. Clutch actuator goes on mt
@  TheBestJohn : (15 December 2014 - 12:48 PM) So get this
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 08:29 PM) That's good to hear, its half off right now at $282.09 Canadian so I'm thinking of just ordering it.
@  Mike T : (13 December 2014 - 08:17 PM) It's the only decent cruise that was available for the 451 in the first years.
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 07:32 PM) does anyone have experience with this cruise control? http://www.smartiepa...e=index&cPath=1
@  FlossyTheSmart : (10 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) If anyone ever happens across a dead attachment (The file doesn't exist when you go to download it), let me know the link to the file. Generally you'll encounter dead attachments in posts older than 2007. The dead links are raising some (false) red flags for me on some things, and it's kind of annoying, so I've been making sure to edit the links away as I find them. The files are typically gone for good.

$250 for a rebuilt seems very reasonable.... that's a lot less than new.

Reasonable indeed - the bits that go into European alternators to rebuild them are pricey too - so it would be hard to touch that price at a local rebuild place.Cheers,Cameron

Very happy to see this offering! Could see possible demand for rebuilt, blueprinted port/polished turbo too. Available in the East from Cherry Turbos but nothing out here AFAIK.B :sun:

I haven't read of turbo failures here for a LONG time, so it seems to be a relatively low-demand repair. My older one has 216,000 km on the original turbo and I think it'll go to 400K.
