Fellow Impala owners,
Hey guys. Have had a powermaster 260 alternator on for over 1 1/2 years. Had a battery scan and the alternator took a dump. This is the second Powermaster Alt. I've had on the Vehicle in 3 years. I have a playstation 2, 1100 watts of Amps, and a T.V., so I guess the 240 was perfect as far as enough power rating was concerned. My question is, is there another alt. that may hold up longer or is better built. I have nothing against powermaster only that I've had to replace 2 alts. in 3 years. These things aren't cheap. I know I can rebuild, and if it is possible this time around then I will rebuild but I just wanted some of your opinions. Thanks
P.S. The first Alt. was replaced free of charge after failing only 2 months after the install. It was a chrome finish (maybe heat?). This one is powdercoated and it doesn't get nearly as hot. This is just a thought, I don't know.
