    Earlier today, I went to the autoparts store to pick-up a new water pump, serpentine belt, hoses etc for my 2004 Yukon XL 1500 and was asked the size of of my alternator (in AMPS) for selecting the correct belt (which I did not know), so can anyone advise on how to tell the differences between the alternators (105 AMPS vs 140 AMPS) and/or advise of the differences it would make to the serpentine belt I should select, obviously I would like to get a new correct belt since I will need to remove it for the Water Pump replacement. Appreciate any advice. Thanks

    I don't know if it matters on the 2004, but on my 2005 there were to styles (a Bosch and a Delco/Delphi) They are not interchangeable.
