? GM alt. not holding up?
This is my third GM alt. in two years on my zuk. Is this normal?
All have quit working, the bearings were good in them, the belt was not to tight just a normal chevy 78 amp alt.
On the rebuild paper work it shows the alt. putting out73 amps at 4,000rpm.........hum.....the chevy engine the alt was made for runs about 2,500 rpms at 60mph .
My zuk runs about 4,000rpms at 60mph
Do you think I'm wearing out the alt because it wasn't meant to run at 4,000rpms all it's life?
The zuk is my daily driver so it's always at 4,000rpms in fifth gears
