        Great Product!

        I was having trouble with my car charging and staying running , so I went to my local ( rhymes with autoclone) and got an alternator . Went great for about 3 days , then went bad. Went back to said store , and they tested it, and told me it was good, I insisted it wasn’t , and they gave me a replacement. Installed that one, and low and behold, it was also bad, like right from the start! Brought it back again, tested fine. They told me I had bad grounds , blah blah blah. I tried to argue, but they weren’t having it, so I gave up. I decided to try for this alternator , and I was very skeptical for the first couple of days, but it is running great! Thank you American Muscle for being a dealer of quality!

        Product did not work, had to return. Sometimes alternators just malfunction. I just got a bad one......I think.

        Very nice alternator

        I replaced my original alternator with this aftermarket unit and it seems to be working great. The only small issue is that the cable connection is opposite than where my cable connects to on my 98 GT OEM alternator. In other words, the cable orients north south instead of east west. I had to use a Dremel to ground down the tabs a bit to orient the cable away from the bracket otherwise, the rubber boot could eventually rip and cause a short. No problem otherwise.

        Easy install great product

        Alternator took about 15 minutes to install my voltage gauge before was dropping to N at idle and would not come up past O at full speed. Now with the new alternator at idle with the lights on and AC on full fan speed the gauge stays right in the middle
