Dam. Seen water pumps do that....you took it to a new level!
I mean, it was still charging up until this bearing or shaft failure. I’m all for preventative maintenance but crazy that it worked until it was completely toast...Dam. Seen water pumps do that....you took it to a new level!
Totally, huge relief, I had noticed a squeal in the front and replaced the idle pulley bearing, couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I am guessing I found the culpritGreat news. Seen water pumps and tension pulleys sieze up but those have always resulted in damaged serp belts. That alt was a stealthy character.
