I have done my homework and am certain that their alternator is the proper one as my current OEM alternator is a 2 pin DR44G series. The new 200 Amp HO alternator will come with an overdrive pulley that is smaller in diameter than my current pulley so the proper current will be flowing at idle.
Anyways, removing the stock alternator and replacing it with the HO alternator looks pretty straightforward. My only concern is setting the proper belt tension once the HO alternator is in place. Do I need any special tools to get the proper tension on the belt so it's not slipping? Secrets? Tips?
have the same problem?
