    i have a 2004 Silverado z71 4x4 with the 5.3 i wanted to ask how do you tell what alternator belongs with the truck, as far as what amp it is 105/145amp??
    i need a new belt for it and belt tensioner soon, the alternator on it now has the wrong grooved pulley for it so i need a new pulley for it as well.
    can anyone help me????

    i bought the truck used, the speedo cluster was going bad so they thought it was a bad alternator and battery. when it wasnt either one. i noticed it had a 5 groove pulley on it instead of a 6 groove, so i figured they got the wrong alternator??? thank you for the link.
