To replace my Alternator Bracket Gasket or not

Changing the alternator would be like skimming the outer atmosphere.The bracket in comparison is like flying to the moon and back.Getting the alternator out is just getting started.

Check the tach ,see if your RPMs bump up with AC on.Load at idle will show more weakness under the hood than WOT.Spark plugs,vacuum leak,etc.Does the AC get cold?Probably not a bad compressor if so.
