Anybody ever have problems with their motorcityreman 200A alternators breaking v-belts? I ran this alternator quite a while and it has just now(a week ago saturday)started breaking belts. I have broken three so far and am wondering if something has happened to the alternator to make it turn harder than before, or if it has just decided it needs a serpentine setup :roll: Sometimes you can smell the burning rubber of the belt as you are driving. Sometimes happens under heavy load(air compressors running) or with not much load going down the track. I even had one come off in the burnout box. It just snaps them because it doesn't knock off the PS/WP belt thank god. Had that happen before on a stock alternator. Doesn't like to start after getting hot :evil:
