I was having some starting & charging issues for a while now, and finally after it not cranking at all (you'll see why) I decided to do something about it.
Trying to find the beat deal for starter/alternator I searched online and found I didn't like their prices at all. Then I thought, "oh I still have that v6.. Wonder if those will work." Well, after comparing part numbers, I was convinced it would be worth it to try.
(Oh, and I'm talking about the '94 3.8l v6 and '94 5.0l v8)
I was almost certain the alternators weren't the same, they're on different sides of the motor! But, after removing both and comparing, they are exactly the same. Bolted up perfecty.
The starter, same way! Removed both, compared, perfect.
Left the solenoid and everything plugged it, started right up.
So, FYI, the alternator and starter from '94 (most likely through 98 or higher) 3.8l v6 is exactly the same as 94-95 5.0's. I doubt the foxbodys are the same though.

Right - V8 Starter
Check out the teeth on the old starter...
