I would like to obtain an M62 and/or S62 alternator for a research project that I have been wanting to do for awhile. If you have one and/or both collecting dust on a shelf at home PM me.

Thanks,
Josiah

No guarantees . . . you might get back something even better than you gave me. That or you'll get back the dead carcass(es) of an(the) alternator(s) that will not be worth much more than a paperweight of equal size.

I've got an air-cooled M62 setup. Does the S62 use the non-vanos (pre-99) E39 M62 alternator?

No, that is a 140 Amp unit, the S62's is a 120 Amp unit.

Besides different mounts whats the problem with more amps? For people with stereos this is beneficial. The car can take the increased amperage also.

I would like both to study an inspect. I'll take a water-cooled M62 alternator also; bonus if you have the water jacket.
