extra price. a shop would charge you around $100-$150. That's wire plus labour.

you can do it yourself for under $50. PM me if you need short peices of 1/0 for your big 3.

Anyone close to a Princess Auto this week should know that the 2/0 and 4AWG welding cables are on sale. It is sold by the foot.

Heres the thing...if you can SEE your alternator you can probably do it cheaply. It really is quite simple, but when I went to do mine for example, Ford stuck the alt almost beside the pan on the pass. side.

Ford and independant shop have both quoted me 3 hours to replace alt. Half the front end end has to come off, including half shafts.

Now, honestly here, if you dont know what an engine block is, i would not attempt it yourself, but there are a lot of skilled people on this board who might offer to do it for you depending on location, etc. I'm sure they wouldnt charge you the same as a shop price.
