Need info upgraded to a Mechman alternator

Recommended Posts

My alternator went out and I installed a new Mechman alternator last weekend. It says to run a 1/2” smaller belt than factory. Does anyone know the length of the factory serpentine belt?

Hey so im having the same issue. I just bought the Mechman Elite 370A alt and can not seem to find a good belt for it. What belt did you end up getting and found one that worked?

I bought the standard gates green back. I have not had a chance to install it yet. Did you do the cable upgrades for the negative and positive cables. I haven’t been able to do the negative cable yet and my alternator randomly stops charging.

I got the CES 370 and went with a Oreilys Masterpro (or gates) .5 inch smaller. However, It has started to squeal the last 2 weeks.
