Is there a difference between my Grand Marquis' 135 amp alternator and the 200 amp P71 model? I'm talking about the connections.

connectors should both be a D shaped 3 pin connector.
On the off chance that they are different, you can just switch over the connectors. Cut the wires, match up the old wires to the new connector, crimp/solder and you're done. Swapping alternator connectors is easy as pie.

Sweet, thanks. I hear a whirring noise and its either the idler pulley or the alternator. To cold to check now, but I'm covering my bases.
