I own an 86 v6 fiero, not an 84 4-cyl like yours probably is.
If you have the old belt, and it broke in one place, just wrap it around the alternator or whatever pulley you were talking about and see where it reaches in a snug position (as it was approximately installed before it snapped)

If there are two pulleys on the same shaft, just pick whichever one is square to the other connecting pulleys. Or just check to see if one shows signs of use or is rusted/dusty (like it hasn't been used recently).

How many pulleys are there total? Water pump, alternator, drive, a/c...4 total? One serpentine belt for all? Give me some more info
and I'll let you know what to do if you haven't figured it out by now

Have an 84 Fiero and want to upgrade the alternator to a newer 100 amp style delco from about early/middle 90s. Where do the 3 sensor wires go to (the ones in the plug) not the one on the stud?

If you got the correct replacement alternator, the connector wires should just plug directly in to the new one. Make sure you have the right one, any thick red wire is the output to the battery, the rest i'm not sure, just compare to the old alternator you took out, maybe match up by comparing wire colors

S Belt on Pontiac Grand Prix

If your belt was not properly routed it could be the issue. About 30 miles driving would be enough time to drain the battery, and your problem may very well be related to a improperly routed belt.

Need diagram for how the belts are run on a 1984 GMC Jimmy V6

I did not pay attention  but figured it out the alternator had a dual pully on it and the parts store sold me one with single pully. Took dual pully of old one an put on new one, the rest was easy.
