Alternator help
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:16:39 PM »
Hey y'all,
Pretty sure I need to get my alternator rebuilt, but I want to make sure I have a factory alternator.  How do I tell?  What am I looking for and where?

Sorry for the pic of the alternator in the light of a flashlight; the alternator started acting up on the drive home tonight from Denver.

It will have diamonds cast into the back of it. A Denso alternator is a decent alternative.

Thanks Toasty!  Are the diamonds visible while the alternator is still in the truck?  Or will I need to take it out to see those?

Thanks again.
