84 300 SD Alternator

Just wanted to do a followup for all that helped with my alternator/charging system problem a couple weeks ago.
After checking everything I could think of and everthing everyone suggested I replaced the regulator. It did help a lot but the output was still marginal at best.
I finally ordered a 120 amp alternator and installed it today. Problem is solved now, YAHOO!!!. It charges 13.9 to to 14 unloaded and will maintain 13.4 with a/c defog etc even at idle.
I did have to grind a little off the adjustment bracket to clear the water hose but other than that it went right in. $120 with double pulley and no core, can't beat it with a stick!
Thanks again to all that helped.
