So then am I to understand that you do not have any alternator to match up with an old one that you want to replace and your frustration exists because all you have to go by is the shape of the original alternator plug. Here is a pic of the alternator style that I believe you need and the plug that fits it. There are several pics.>> http://www.google.com/imgres
