I've been wandering around this site for quite some time and find almost everyone helpful so decided to ask for help because I'm stumped. I had the alternator on my 02 LS V8 rebuilt about 4 months ago and last week it started smoking. I knew it was fried so I bought a new one and when removing the one I had rebuilt I noticed the positive alternator post was melted. I want to avoid this happening to the new one I have so I need help finding out what caused it to melt so I can fix that to save myself the later headache. Plz Any help is appreciated.
