With you being in Florida I would check with the guys in the Florida Chapter. They have done so much work on their engines they can take them apart and put them back together blindfolded.

I think it will work if the mount is the same.

Probably a direct fit. If my alternator ever goes away a 160 is in the mix. To be sure, check out one of the big-box parts houses and compare part numbers.

Don't look now, but your CB will never draw enough current to make the alternator break a sweat. Your audio system draws more current.

Just had to replace mine. 2nd time first time was for bearing squeal, never really failed but replaced it anyway. This time for some reason the small connector that goes back to PCM burnt and melted, think diodes shorted. But I went back to NAPA and got replacement for $60.00 as the one I bought from them had a 3 year warranty but the guy at shop called and got me a deal as mine was 4 years, they now offer lifetime warranty. But if anyone can tell me where to get the connector that attaches to the alternator I would appreciate it.

@mikehtally ill tell when you do cb competition and the set up you run draws around 75 amps you got a little something.more then a regular cb lol I can almost shut the truck off hahaha. The truck is back together good as new new bearings and a little work from the local alternator shop 35$ is bad I don't think
