My 94, the 94 Cantorian, and my 95 Eddie Bauer are all 3g.
You must have ended up with a "parts leftover " truck.
post the build date off the door please, this one has me stumped1
It's a 1991 build date, sold as a 1992 "Custom." So I guess it's kinda like the 2014 Mustang leftovers they converted to 2014 Warrior Mustangs to sell to Soldiers in Afghanistan. I always wonder why they differentiated between Flareside/Lariats and Customs in same years and engines/transmissions.

I'm guessing this is the answer.

I'll be shopping tonight. Guessing the alternator is NOT going in tomorrow. :-p

No, you have some soldering, and taping to do

In the end, you will be glad you did it.

Oh, and my wife said she wants the last truck done now too, so I have an alternator on the way from rockauto. guess I'll have pictures...….LOL

That's awesome!

I'll take pictures of the soldering and taping and kinda show my process. I'm pretty good on documentation (Aviator/military/data analytics training & IT Contractor experience).

May the odds be ever in your favor! :-)

where you really see the difference, the frame rails in the front on 91 are straight

the frame rails on 92'96 are crimple, to bend in an accident ( air bag trucks)
except the diesels, and 460's they kept the straight frame

Oh, and which alternator did you buy?
The 95 amp uses your stock belt. The 160 amp, that's the one with the 180* mounts. ( straight up and down, and huge)
Uses the belt for a 94 f150 with a 5.0.

Just spent $600 between dogs, hydroponics, and alternator conversion stuff (ebay/amazon). I'm spent.

The Alternator I got -- forgot, there's a core charge, woohoo -- is from Advance. It's Stock #7761A by CarQuest, 130amp. It's for a 1995 F150, hoping it'll fit. Has mounting positions at the 12 and 6 position. May need a new bolt and spacer to make the gap solid, and I know there could be some grinding involved to get it to slide into the framing mount inside the truck.

I got it from there because it's one of those things you don't want to wait for on the road and Advance is everywhere, plus Carquest and the other main brand they carried have a limited lifetime warranty whereas the RockAuto only had 1-2 years pending the brand. Better brands, lesser warranty. Figured it was worth the lesser brand with a better warranty and faster turn-around to replace.

The 6 cyl mount takes both style alternators.

The shortest answer is to take the alternator off the truck and take it to your friendly neighborhood parts house and get it tested. Then you're standing in front of the counter when they tell you it's shot. If the battery is staying charged, I wouldn't worry too much about a dip in voltage at idle speed, especially if you've got the HVAC fan running, the lights on, and the ghetto blaster rattling the windows. I have a manual transmission, and sometimes bog the engine down a little when backing or whatever. Not uncommon if the engine speed drops below 800 RPM to see the alternator output droop a little. I still have the original factory 2G in my truck. Unless you're adding a bunch of electrical load to that truck, I don't think I'd bother with changing to a 3G. It's an easy enough conversion, but if you don't need the extra output, it won't really help you with anything but bragging rights.
