Question about Cars & Trucks

Then your tension must be too great and your alignment poor. Use a square to help align the pulleys after the next belt is put on. See if you can get a kevlar belt.

the problem is not the altenator. you should have a idler pully and a self adjusting idler tensioner. if thes e go bad the bearings tend to seize up and break belts i would check these first chance you get the tensioner should be spring like and be hard to move back and forth the pulley part of it should spin freely with out makeing a noise. please rate this

SOURCE: altenator belt breaking
Is this a single serpentine belt system or a V belt with 2 or more belts running the accessories? There is an alignment issue, another bad accessorie or bad bearing (quite possibley the new alt) or as mentioned a bad idler ( if a serpentine belt setup)

I found out that I have a altenator pulley that is not the original pulley. After 6 belts I found that I needed an A belt...put it on...it sits down in the pulley instead of riding on top of it...got the altenator tightened up and 500 miles later it's going fine.I think I got it this time...knock on wood.
