Alternator & Starter Part Numbers
Alternators and starters have a main part number, this is known as the "Lester" part number.
Under that part number there is a single or multiple unit part numbers, these unit part numbers are assigned by their application, this might be something different such as mounting or a particular specification within the unit. Example A Lester number 7524 would have unit part numbers under it, example...1525425, 1525428 and so on.
This part number will be needed when selecting a parts list for your alternator or starter when using the Vehicle Search.

There has been some cases where the part number may not be the original manufacturer part number and cannot be cross referenced.
Some vehicle MAY have 1 Lester part number but have 2 different manufacturers of the same unit, you easily sort this out by the unit part number. discussed Where can these unit part numbers be found?
On alternators this number can be found stamped on one of the sides of the front frame or on a tag on the rear cover.
On starters it is usually on a plate or tag on the field casing "the main body".
