Hey guys

(1999 Mercury Cougar)
Hey guys i'm going to replace the alternator on my 99 cougar 2.5 and I wanna know if a 100 psi air compressor will be strong enough to take the lug nuts off and bolts to the alternator off. Anybody? It has 1/3 horsepower running, 1.0 SCFM @ 40psi and 0.6 SCFM @ 90 psi. Please help.

I don't think your compressor is big enough for airtools like an impact wrench. I'd say, get a bigger pcmpressor or do it by hand.
