Bosch Water cooled alternator diodes

I know this is an old post but I am having this experience for the first time and wanted to share my findings. I found a distributor that has access to all kinds of parts and keeps in stock the Bosch 50 amp diodes which currently are selling for $3.08 each. Here is there info...

Faulkner Auto Electric
1831 NW 28TH Ave, Portland, OR
(503) 227-3567

They were very helpful and are shipping the parts right to my door even though they are only 20 minutes away from me. Saves me some time and gas!

Hope this helps some with finding parts!
