I am really impressed with the value and quality of this new 130 amp alternator. It is superior to the defective OEM 95 amp alternator that it I replaced on my 1997 F250 light duty pick up with the 4.6 V-8.

Advanced Auto ran a diagnostic test on my old 95 amp alternator and confirmed my suspicion that the diode was defective and the cause of my dead battery problem. I greatly appreciated this service.

Removal of the old alternator required that I move the spark plug wires out of the way and tie them to a secure object to create enough space to remove the old alternator. Once the retaining bolts were removed, I had to manipulate the old alternator somewhat and rotate it upside down to remove it from the engine. Installation of the new alternator required the same type of manipulation to get it ready to bolt up to the engine. There is an "L" shaped bracket that attaches to the top of the alternator and to the intake manifold. The new 130 amp alternator has a larger case and the bolt hole at the 90 degree bend on the "L" shaped bracket did not line up with the corresponding hole on the intake manifold when the end of the "L" shaped bracket was attached to the alternator. I removed the bracket and elongated the hole at the 90 degree bend of the "L" shaped bracket with a Dremel grinder. When I re-installed the "L" shaped bracket, all of the holes lined up perfectly. It took me about one hour to remove the old alternator, install the new alternator and modify the "L" shaped bracket.

I would characterize the level of skill required to do my installation as "moderate." However, it could be considered "difficult" if a person does not have the know how or the tools to solve the problem that I encountered. Then again, there may be some installations where the "L" shaped bracket does not need to be modified, thereby making this a relatively "easy" installation as described in the other reviews.

My truck has started perfectly each time with no dead battery since installing the new 130 amp alternator one month ago. Thanks!

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 130 Amps:

Just changed out my bad Alternator for this one. Replaced the 4 1/2 year old battery as well. Too early to tell about longevity, but only took about an hour from start to finish, minimal tools, and all i well so far. Got an online discount but still pricey.

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 130 Amps:

I would highly recommend using the on-line purchasing. You can take your time to review several items, you can't do this in the store. You can read the reviews and chose the product that suits your needs and budget.

What I like the most is the ability to order on-line, go to the store ad pick it up. It makes doing repairs fast, easy and most of all, convenient. The store personnel are always friendly, helpful, and ready to make suggestions if I am still unsure.

I would highly recommend suing the store site to make an informed decision.

      This alternator looks to be a good replacement for my OEM. Installation on my 99 F150 took about 45 minutes. It solved my battery drain problem and is working great.

          Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 130 Amps:

          I bought this for my 2002 F150 (had it for 2 years). It had a reman alternator from who knows where and I have no idea how long it has been on the truck.
          This Carquest unit bolted right on with no problems. I had them check it at the store before I left just to make sure though. I know many have issues with reman units, so I am hoping by going new I don't have issues, but if I do, there is a limited lifetime warranty, and on my truck, only takes about 15 minutes to remove with 2 socket wrenches.
          Only real con (and not really a big one) is mine came with a 8 rib pulley, but my truck has a 6 rib belt. Not a huge deal since the 6 rib belt works just fine on the 8 rib pulley, just make sure the belt is in line.
