Need help in Identifying Alternator

I have a chrome alternator I bought on Ebay and accidently shorted it out. I've checked and the diodes need replacement. In order to find the correct diodes for alternator I need to know the manufacturer. The only description I can think of is that it came in a checkered black and white bag that has a pattern like a checkered flag you see at races.

I'm hoping one of you might know the manufacturer who uses these checkered bags to wrap their alternators in.

Thanks.

Can't you pull the diode (or diode trio) out and get a number off of it? Or take it to an auto-electric shop? Is it a single wire alternator?

If the seller is a full time eBay wheeler dealer, find him and ask.

I bought it three or four years ago so I don't have a clue who I bought it from.

I know I can tear it apart and get numbers off the diodes, but it sure is a lot easier and means less downtime if I have the diodes before I tear the alternator apart.

Thanks
