I went ahead and installed the (gen 1) rare electrical alternator. When it came to the ground
wire connection I installed it on where the same bolt the bad alt was. Turn key on and no (gen 1) light, so I
switched it to the other bolt, I turn the key on and both gen lights on, and engine cranks up as it should
and both gen lights off.

My question is, what is this bad remy alternator that was in there? Is this someones attempt
at saving some money and did some kind of conversion? Side by Side pics below. Nevertheless it was
a learning experience, from testing to finding the problem, getting the part, and installation.

Plan is order another rare electric, place it on standby, rebuild the remy (maybe) and find the actually bad component.

Is the remy worth rebuilding? or should I save the rebuild kit for future use, to me the remy is an oddball, like
it doesn't belong. Am I wrong? or is it how they used to build them?

The rare electric is doing fine y'all
