My Alternator went this morning . I posted a while ago about a wierd humming. Well this morning the humming was back and the voltage was in the red. Damnit!

Oh yeah, I fix everything on all my cars, and families cars too, no need for a shop. (unless its an engine or trans rebuild, thats out of my league.) This Alt. Has been going from 14V to 12V and back and forth for a while. This morning when I fired her up the voltage was around 10 or so, not quite down to the 8. I guess I'll have to chalk this one up as Alt #1 to go on me. Hopefully I dont have too many more to chalk up.

well, your not the first! Make sure and get another altrenator with a garentee. I've gone through 2 since september but the 2nd one was free because the 1st one was under their garentee!

get the next size up replacement for the alternator... 130 amp i think(stock is 105 i think) ? either that or 160 (obtainable in ACDelco with lifetime warrenty) It is a beast so will require some very minor mods, but works wonders when done (get the boot that goes over the wire on the alternator side or be prepared for some serious stretching)

The front bearing on most alternators is too small. Soon as it goes it takes out the windings. Seldom is it the regulator.

Gaffer? What up with the double post 1 hour apart?
