Went to the store a while ago, on the way home I started hearing some squeaking from the belt driven stuff,(super technical). Got home popped off the belt seems its the alt, and/or the pulley to the right of the alternator. I have 2 other alternators laying around in addition to the one on my truck.
I have an explorer alternator rated at 95 amps, same mounting setup wrong pulley and too low amperage.
I have a 92 fox body alternator, 200 amp, wrong mounts and pulley
And the alternator on my truck. Possible bearing issue, 130 amps right pulley(obviously),
Anyone see where I'm going with this?
I see an upgrade opportunity, what I'm thinking is changing the front of the fb alt with the one from the ex and throwing my pulley on there. What do you guys think. I don't really want to spend the $150 on a new alt when I have this stuff laying around. All cases are the same except the fronts that have the mounts all three have the same regulator wire layout as well.
