I am thinking about putting a taurus fan in my 94 Amigo 2.6 to try and free up a couple of ponies. Thinking I should try and get a bigger alternator. Strictly looking for a boneyard unit that will bolt up and give a few more amps. Any suggestions?

The alternator from the Taurus (Ford 3G alt.) is a good one...135 Amps or so, and it can be bolted onto the 2.6 with just a little bit of creativity.

I have the Taurus fan as well, and the stock alternator was fine with it except on a certain 105* day, when the fan was on high speed.
I now have only the low speed wired-up to the temp. switch (because I'm lame) and even that works just fine.
The biggest reason I put the Ford alternator on there is because the rest of you dirty bastards corrupted me and I had just bought a pair of "Monster Garage" mechanic's gloves. :flipoff2:
