          First alternator bit the dust less than an hour of running. Second one is holding up so far. Its the gamble you take buying mass-rebuilt products. Poor quality control.The pulley stripped off the shaft and began spinning free. Probably trying to rebuild a core that was out of spec to begin with.

              Installed this product in August 2008, in January of this year my vehicle started making a terribly loud squealing (very embarrassing). Figured out it was this alternator. Changed it again. Not cool. My time IS valuable.
