Just wish your part discriptions were more then the part number. Price is a big part of my buying criteria. I though I ordered the main belt along with the alternator. Turned out to be the air conditioning compressor. A few words in the discription beyound the part number would help... I don't keep a manufacture part number cross reference in my back pocket.

Decent part

Alternator fit and was easily to install. Looks just like OEM. However, at full load at idle, it fails to maintain 13.5 volts. Voltage runs down to 12.5 until RPMs come up...Read complete review

Alternator fit and was easily to install. Looks just like OEM. However, at full load at idle, it fails to maintain 13.5 volts. Voltage runs down to 12.5 until RPMs come up above idle. It will work, but not at idle.

        Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 105 Amps:

        This alternator was easy to install, according to my husband, but it went bad in 33 days, which seemed like some sort of record, and I was on a highway out of town when the battery light came on. The other problem was that when I initially ordered it online, I put in my car's make & model, and three so-called choices popped up. The one I chose of the three turned out not to be correct for my car, so the discount I received for doing the transaction online was lost, which was quite aggravating.

                      The alternator on my Chevy Avalanche quit one cold night without warning. I got it home and ordered a new one online. With the online discount it made for a very economical replacement.If you are getting a new belt make sure they match the alternator Different belts for different amperages.
                      When I picked it up I turned in the core and got instant credit. Twenty minutes later installed and ready to go. Aahh the beauty of a small block Chevy. When they do break they are cheap and easy to work on.

                            For my 2001 Silverado Z71 with 5.3L, I replace alternator with a 130 amp. The Z71 must have came with a 105 amp alternator because the serpentine belt was too short by about 3/4". I had to buy a longer belt but everything works.

                            The difference is just the design and how many amps it puts out. Usually, you want a high amperage alternator if you run more accessories or plan to run more accessories.
