My 86 cavalier sedan 2.0fI TBI.
I looked around and found out the more lode the harder it is for the belt to turn the alternator pulley. when the belt screeches the alternator stops charging, and my battery drops to 12.V.
What I will do tonight:
-- Belt tensioned corrected.
-- Sand down the pulley in case its glazed over.
-- Will pick up a new belt. Any help with a part number for my belt?
I'm more worried how I rewired the alternator:
-- I rewired the car. took off all after market accessories, like. the remote start. key-less entry. crazy alarm. this is how I rewired my alternator. It didn't come like this but , I am use-to older G.M's . I really don't remember how it was before. I have the book and still cant figure it out. I need a picture for "DUMMIES". hope this is still ok? advise needed please!
Let me get a pic of mine before you make any goofs.That tab on the top has a white plastic plug that goes into it.You can buy these all day long at auto zone and these are for GM cars.The post with the nut is def positive as said.I just got in doors and a touch late.If I do not get the pic tonight I will pop one sat ok.Ron
okay, I see something. thanks so much.
wow - another difference. Mine just has the red wire and the black plug in.
No problem just want to make sure you get it set right to avoid issues like burning up a alternator or battery.R
just a note, once a v belt slips and starts squealing, its done for. It glazes the surface of the belt and its never the same.
The OHV Design places the Alternator right over the Exhaust Man. where it can suck in the extra hot air - especially during the hot summer months.
I've had a couple take a crap on me on this engine, but at least they are super easy to replace!! Can't complain about that
