worked fine

Exact fit for my 2000 Blazer. Do yourself a favor if you are swapping this and replace your belt also. Only takes about 30 minutes to swap out.

I would not recommend this alternate for a Chevrolet Blazer 4.3L or S-10 4.3L. I went through 3 of these alternators before changing to a different alternator all together.

The first alternator I hooked up to the truck and it worked until we turned the truck off and back on. I ended up taking it back to Advance who put it on their alternator tester and found that it failed after 2 tests.

The second and third alternators would do the same in the truck, as would work until we turned the truck off and back on. Could not get it to fail on the in store tester. I don't think it runs long enough on their tester to really get a good measurement.

I wouldn't discourage someone with a different vehicle from trying it though. May have just been a bad batch in my area.

      The only thing more I could have asked for is to have them install the part and give it to me for free! In other words, I bought it, installed it, it worked.

      Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 100 Amps:

      I replaced the original alternator on my blazer on Sunday because the bearings were starting to whine a little and the wife was planning on going away the following weekend . She had a Dr's appointment on Tuesday and the battery light came on. She made it home but, the battery was weak enough that the car wouldn't start back up. It lasted about 2 hours.
      Good news was Advance gave me the Carquest reman with lifetime warranty to replace it with.
      So far so good with this one.

        With a 14-year old car that you just want to keep running, why spend any more on OEM product. The unit slid right in as a replacement with everything lining up perfectly. Performed flawlessly right from the start.
