    Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 140 Amps:

    I have a 1997 GMC C1500 w/5.7/350. The original alternator was a 105Amp CS130D with a single wire from Oval connector. This ToughOne 8219-5AN/140amp is a CS144 with a rectangle rear plug connector with 4 available prongs and will require an (hardwire) adapter from AutoZone. The mount in my case was exact fit with six rib serpentine belt pulley. There was enough space for install without Mods. The hard part is cutting the oval the connector off and removing unneeded tabs in the pigtail and soldering it together and adding shrink tubing. To do this,you will need to line up the L or I input on the connectors(compare oval & rectangle). HOWEVER, I found WAY BETTER route - I was able to go with a brand New AD244 type 160 amp Alternator which needed NO modifications whatsoever. I was told the CS144 when hot, would drop amps due to less venting than AD244. The AD244 has many structural and design improvements over the CS144/#8219-5AN (which I returned and had not installed prior to my research findings). The AD244 is the latest generation for GM truck and is made for high output at low RPM in truck motors. Call EORFL and see if you have this option available to you.

        Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 140 Amps:

        Read reviews first, then bought one. This alternator DOES NOT fit 88-98 CHEVY C/K 1500'S! Bolt pattern is not the same. Do not use this part number.
        Use Delphi or go to Auto Zone.

          I have a 1 Ton dooley with lots of additional lighting and 2 batteries.
          Alternator keeps up with all lights on, cooling fans running and air conditioning running at idle.
          holds a steady voltage just over 14 VAC.
          Would recommend to others.

          Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - New - 140 Amps:

          This Item is a genuine junk I installed it on a 96 chevy k3500 looking to replace the original alternator 124amp which had 205k on it, which still worked but wanted the extra amps for plowing. But instead got less power and it cut out at random, my lights would max out the alternator and when i wanted to take it back to the store they put it on the tester and said it was good so they could not refund my money but then again the store tested a starter that could not crank a motor and it was good to according to them so what this pretty much means is dont waste your time getting stuck with a boat anchor a $160 boat anchor with core. If i had left this on the truck it would be eating batteries with the plow
