Default Vehicles with 130A 3g Alternators from the factory

This is a list of vehicle's with 3G alternators from the factory.

All of these Ford vehicles had the 130A 3G.

(1994-95) Ford Mustang 5.0L
(1994-00) Ford Mustang 3.8L
(1994-97) Ford Thunderbird, Mercury Cougar 3.8L
(1990-95) Ford Taurus, Mercury Sable 3.8L
(1993-99) Ford Taurus, Mercury Sable 3.0L
(1995-98) Ford Windstar 3.8L & 3.0L
(1991-94) Lincoln Continental 3.8L
(1992-97) Ford F Series Pickup
(1992-96) Ford E Series Van

Most of the 130A 3G's will crank out 140-160 amps.

The first picture shown will fit the early Serpentine belt trucks and older V-belt trucks:



The second picture shown will only fit the V-belt trucks well. you can fab some extra brackets and force it to fit the early serpentine belt systems, but it's not pretty:



Difference's between 95A and 130A 3G alternator:

Yes ridge, you'll need 4/0 wire, battery lug ends, and solder, I've got propane or map gas that we can use, propane should do it. You'll also need new battery terminals that have studs sticking straight up on them, electrical tape, the wire butt or splice connectors(the open on both end ones that are crimped), crimpers, wire strippers, a battery tray from a 1987-1991 ford truck, the fusebox of course, and some MISC bolts to bolt the battery tray down and the bracket we're gonna make down to the battery tray, we'll need a hacksaw and a clamp and hammer.

Sounds like a plan. Once the seats are in it will make it easier for me to come visit. How long would it take to do the change over?I also wonder if moving the battery to the bed of the truck would make it easier to do?

Re-locating the battery to the bed will make you have to buy more wire, which isn't cheap. Shouldn't take 2 hours to do the 3g swap, the main part on mine was fabbing the bracket for the fusebox and grinding and fitting the 3g to the bracket, your's won't need to be ground.

The alternator bracket on yours is different from the serpentine setup.
