The Bosch alternator is definitely dead. It would appear that any INCANDESCENT light will do for the alternator. Led's do not provide enough resistance. I looked further afield on the internet and a lot of people have run into this problem.
Shop manuals printed when these cars were new do not mention this fact
because LED's were a rarity. Most of the videos on you tube leave out this important fact as well.
I will try again tomorrow.

How do you know the alt is dead? The brushes are serviceable on these BTW and are about $30.
