My alternator/generator on my truck is starting to make grinding noises, so I am looking at replacing it.
The label came off the alternator/generator, so I have no idea what ampage its supposed to be. Someone told me to look on the code list in the glovebox, which I did, and to find the numbers that start with "K". One that matches the code list is K60 which is 100 amps. So I guess this is the standard one for this truck engine?
My question is, will it hurt the truck or the battery if I get a higher amp alternator/generator? Will anything over 100 amps work without problems, or does it strictly have to be 100 amps?
I got a new battery last year and don't want to damage it or the truck.
have the same problem?
