  1. I have a couple of questions about a new build I'm putting together. I'm switching to my system to all lithium and will be eliminating my agm. I see everyone say that if you put lithium and agm together it will blow your alternator. Is this true? Also is it safe to start your car with lithium batteries? And is it recommended to purchase a bms for these deafbonce lithiums I got? https://alphardaudio.us/products/lithium-battery-lt-lfp-300p My system will be at around 9k watts powering 2 custom made 18 inch pierce audio 4k 12 magnet neo subs. My alternator is a 240 amp mechman,
  2. What’s up all I have a 2018 f150. I just put a mechman 370 alternator in. Now my charging system light is on and my lights are flickering. I put it in the same way I took it out. Does anyone know if there’s something special I have to do or any help. Thanks

  5. I am swapping my alt out for a mechman with a 1.75 inch pulley. I measured my stock pulley to be 2.5 inches. The belt for my car is approx. 84.5 inches. What size belt would i need. In order to swap my alternator out i need to remove the front passenger tire so using the "try multiple belt sizes until it fits" isn't the best approach for me Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Ordered last Friday and got it on Friday. Fast shipping looks like the one that is in Jeep already but it has a 160 amp big case already. Ready to install when it warms up! Beautiful work Mechman!!!!! Commander going to like this extra Juice! [sharedmedia=garage:vehicles:2438]
  7. It is coming up on 3 years since I have had my 220A Alt installed on my 2005 xB and I just wanted to say a few things that I have encountered and experienced in this time. First off if you have a gen 1 xB and are going to install a large case conversion alt you will have to get a longer belt. What I have discovered is that by using the stock upper bracket that the belt over time stretches and eventually can not get enough tension on the belt as you max out the adjustability that the bracket will allow. All the rest of the hardware you will need comes with the alt so there are no worries there.
  8. I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. I have come across an alt for a 99-03 Pontiac Grand Prix. I see on your web site you have alts for 99-03, 05-08, and then the '04 is separate. Why is this? I know mine using a 4 pin and has the same mounting as both models.
  9. ok so i have been wanting to get a 170 amp high output alt from mechman for almost a year. then i finally get the money and order it for my 2001 oldsmobile alero 2.4L. i wait a week and then i get a email that says the tracking code and everything. about a week later i receive my alternator. everything looks great and im super excited to put it in my car. go to my dads shop to put it in. we start taking out the old one and my dad is telling me that shit aint gonna fit. i just keep telling him dad its made just for my car and engine. so we try to put it in and the post and plug are on top of th

  13. Looking for more output at idle from ANY alternator on your 1999-2012 GM truck or SUV ??? Look no further !!! We will soon be stocking OVERDRIVE harmonic ballancers for LS series GM trucks and SUV's with 4.8L, 5.3L, 6.0L, and 6.2L engines, 1999 through 2012. This replacement ballancer has a larger diameter 8 rib crankshaft pulley on it. This means that your alternator or alternators will be spinning 10% faster at idle, which can mean a 50 to 100 amp increase at idle, depending on which high output alternator(s) you have. If you are running multiple high output units and have a problem

  18. I'm selling a Mechman CS144 HO Alt. Its a 250a w/ built in adjustable voltage regulater (currently set at 15.2v). It seen about 2 mos of usage before I sold the car & I have no use for it now b/c I have a totally diff car. It comes w/ the V Belt pulley but is easily changable. This alt is used on a varity of GM vehicles. You should know what would fit your application. Or, you can easily check w/ one of the alt manufaturer's websites for fitment. I paid $450 shipped a little over a year ago. Its a little dirty from being handled w/ dirty hands but thats all. If anyone needs me to take clo
