Ok, the alternator on my 94 4.6 cougar went. As the car has 190000 miles and I am kind of broke right now, I don't want to go out and spend the $130 for a new alternator if I dont have to. I also have lying around an alternator off a 97 bird. The connections on it look the same so I was wondering if I can use the 97 alt. on my 94 or are they different outputs or something. Thanks.

Same alternator..a direct swap.
You can also look around on eBay-there's a company on there selling new takeoffs from RV and ambulance conversions for around $60.It's the same alternator as is used on your car..
