another question about the alternator! even though it gets extremely hot, it isn't bad. the motor does not run on the battery and the batter doesn't go dead so any suggestions would be helpful. maybe those alternators just run really hot. ???????!!!!!
Where this ever go? BTW.. alternators do get hot.. but not usually hotter than the motor.

Disconnect the negative battery cable and put a test light between it and the body of the car. If the light comes on.. you have a short in the harness. Seeing that this thread is almost 2 years old I guess your probably either done with this project or its dead.
