Default belt

You should use belt grip spray made for that purpose to test for belt squeal.

You could search locally for a little shop that rebuilds starters and alternators. usually bearings/brushes run about $30 installed.

Advance is the next idea...although many here say their AC Delco remans aren't as durable. I have one..it'* working good. If you are in the area... I can get ya a discount.

Go to advance and ask them what it will cost you to get an AC Delco Reman with a lifetime warranty.. It should not exceed $200 .. Mine was $180.. And its been flawless... The Basic Liftime reman units that Advance Sells all failed in short order.. The AC Reman is of higher quality

Almost forgot... It should be a 124-125 amp unit

Is the altenator itself marked? The $260 figure is a Delco from a GM Dealer.
