Yep, that part is a no brainer. But, how do you find a matching speedometer? Is there a separate part number for a 1985 car? When I find used listings, they will just specify it is compatible with a...

Sorry for the slow reply. I bought my 120A alternator from an eBay seller called bnrparts. They have a lot of ratings and apparently are very reputable. They said it is a rebuilt Bosch unit.

Cold Starts

The alternator on my 1984 300D stopped putting out so I replaced it a few weeks ago with a rebuilt 120Amp Bosch unit. I believe 120A is about the largest you can get without replacing the OEM wiring....
