Default Alternator Question

I am looking on eBay for a alternator.

Mine completely froze the other night for a split second,,,,,the belt made a quick "SQUEEK", then the battery light flickered, and all was good again.

Bearing is hella bad since I got it, it sounds like a spun crank bearing. LOUD!

Scared the hell outta me! Funds are LOW. So I was going to buy a used alt from eBay for $54.99 (Free Shipping) before I am left stranded in the dark somewhere.

Question is: The one in question is from a 1994 2.4L donor. My truck is a 1993 2.4L. Will it fit on my truck?

The listing is saying my year is NOT COMPATIBLE with the part.

Google images is showing my year as having the bolt holes at around 1 O Clock and 6 O Clock. And the 1994 as having bolt holes at 12 O Clock and 6 O Clock.

Please help me out fellas. I need to get this ordered soon.

You can try cross referencing the Nissan Part Numbers.

There two listed for 1993.

Generator - Part Code: 23100
23100-56G00 Production Date: 07/1993-
HITACHI
Replaced by: 23100-56G00R

23100-80G09 Production Date: 07/1990-07/1993
HITACHI

I appreciate the input, but I just ordered a used one for $50.00 (Free Ship) from a 93 2.4L.

I just need it to last a month, then I am doing the 125A Quest Alt.

Just do not have the funds to buy a new Quest Alt, New Belt, and all the other fun stuff I am sure I will need before all is said and done, at this time.

But the Alt I have in the truck now has been on borrowed time since I bought it back in June or July 2014.

I am however curious as to how to cross reference parts for my truck for future reference.

One site stated the first part number was for 1990-1994. Yet 3 other sites stated the first part number was only for 1990-1993.

I would love to know a trick on what year parts work,,,,or do not work on my truck so I do not have to ask next time I go on a eBay scavenger hunt.

I am familiar with the difference between the Z engine and the KA, but after the KA came out, I thought they were all the same from "I Think" 1990- until 1998 when the Fronty came out and the D21 went away?

As long as it's a KA Truck motor the plugs and mounts should be the same. I know for a fact the plugs from 92-02 are all the same.

I bought the 110 amp alt I had in my pathfinder from the junkyard, made sure I got an original Nissan one, didn't want any re manufactured crap. Stopped at the autoparts on the way home and had it tested, all was good, think I paid less than $20 for it, may have been a half price sale day, even at normal price would have been $35.

If you don't have a junkyard near by than you don't have this option of course.

Weird the listings for the alternator, some say 90-93 others say 94 fits 94, than 95 says 95-97, only difference I see is the one mounting tab, some are straight across from the double mounts, others the single tab is off set slightly.

I read the plugs are the same. It's the mounting brackets that are in question. Weird!

We have a HUGE U Pull It yard, but with my alternator giving me that scare the other night, I am hesitant to drive it 30mins to the junk yard, and possibly strike out finding a donor.

That place had about 3 D21's last time I went but they get picked to the bone pretty quick around here.

I would think the KA24 Alts are all the same.

This one is said to be for a 1994



This one is for the 1993



You can see the upper mounting bracket on the first one is straight up. The other is kinda leaning to the left.

I dunno.

Those are actually upside down from how they're on the truck. The difference in that could be fixed with a longer belt.
