What was wrong with the alternator? Did the shop owner have a boat payment due? Alternators don't just quit, they fail in an identifiable way. If the shop can't tell you why they replaced it I'd find another shop. A set of new brushes for an alter

Sloppy as in loose fitting or metal slivers remaining or what? The FL-820s and FL-500s filters that I have used have had zero issues with threads or with any of the internals when viewed after the post-op dissection.

As the car battery approaches it's end of the warranty period, doesn't the alternator have to work harder to keep the battery charged? At one time I had a battery for over eight years with no problem. Then I noticed that my add-on voltmeter showed a
