When I needed an alternator pronto, I went to Napa in San Jose, AutoZone, and Kragen.

None had the Bosch 120 in stock. Some could get it. But it wasn't the same price as mailorder from our sponsors.

BTW, add at least $25 to the price for an alternator to ship it back to the sponsor (ask me how I know) so if the core charge is, say $35, you only get $10 net back from that core charge.
