Alternator Questions / What to do with my old alternator?
« on: September 10, 2009, 10:46:06 PM »
I'm so satisfied with my new dual rectifier that I don't want to keep my old 200 amper anymore.
Can I send it to alternatorparts.com as a thank you?

Today I swapped out the OEM tranny heat exchanger for a much bigger one.



Side-by-side with the replacement

Here's the numbers from the gauge at idle. I'm very pleased.
This alternator can be found at www.alternatorparts.com

Here's the new alternator finally installed. The numbers are fantastic too. I'll shoot a picture of the gauge showing the numbers tonight. 14+ volts at idle, around 8k rpm. I've never seen it that high.

Here's the pics of the area that was being hit by the alternator casing



And here's the gringing I had to do to get it to fit. It really wasn't much.

Well, after clocking the alternator and a bit of grinding on the rear case, I got it installed. I'll post the grind pics tomorrow. I have yet another issue now...What in the world does it take to push the idler pulley down far enough to get the serpintine belt back on? This thing is imposible!

Cool. I'll have to look at that at home. Work for some reason, blocks us from youtube, otherwise I'd be watching videos all day instead of working. :-)

Thanks Drew, I was hoping I wouldn't have to send it in. I can do this after work tonight. You can disregard the personal email I sent you a few minutes ago.

The rear end-cover is installed 1/4 turn off. This is preventing it from sliding into the bolt mounts. Can I remove the end cover and rotate it to the right place, or should I send it back?

This is some exemplary work, so I changed the title and stickied it.

The Dual Rectifier came today. I'll get her installed this weekend.

Thanks Drew, any pictures or illustrations to show this? Would the second ground cable attach at one of the alternator mounting bolts and run to the ground post of the battery?

Those are funny. I sure would like to know what caused all that water to shoot up from under that freeway.

Are there any pictures of the quickcool system installed on a vehicle?
