    Blados = Things looky sketchy.

    Before he jumps the gun, and tries to point all the blame in my direction, this needed to come out into the open.

    Sorry man.

    Earlier this morning I opened this PM:

    "Hey,
    I got around to trying to install the alternator today. Unfortunately it doesn't fit my 99 yukon. I can get it in 2 bolts securing it, but it's not secure enough to drive around with. The mounting is completely different than the original. That said, I can't use this alternator which is a shame. I'll have to send it back to you and ask for a refund. Let me know how you want to do this. Thanks.

    Jason"



    I then replied with this:

    Hey man.


    Im sorry to hear your having troubles with the install. Although, it IS meant for that vehicle, because I have a 99 Tahoe and thats what it came from. Same engine, same everything. It only uses 2 mounting holes. That bracket is there only for support. Your probably going to have to have it professionally installed.

    Let me know how you make out.
    Thanks.


    And now... This is what I get in reply:

    I had my truck in the shop and asked them to replace the alternator while they were fixing some other issues. They told me the alternator wouldn't fit. I went up there myself to see because you specifically told me it would fit my vehicle. My mechanic would not install it because it is not properly supported. If one of those front bolts were to come loose it would cause a lot of damage. The back bracket is necessary for support. The alternator technically "fits" there but it's not safe. It's clear this alternator was not specifically made for this vechicle, but might "work" with modification. I don't want to turn this into a problem, but if you don't cooperate with me, I'll have to file a paypal claim, and I really don't want to go through the hassle. Thanks.



    If need be, I will (hopefully) get Dom Iraggi himself to clarify that this IS the specific alternator for his application. It fit no problem whatsoever on my Tahoe, and his 1999 Yukon is the SAME truck. It does fit. Just because his "mechanic" says otherwise, I dont see how that becomes my problem.

    All the while, it was paid and shipped out roughly a month ago. There should be no reason im getting threats for paypal claims. This sounds to me like a shortage of cash issue, and now he is trying to get me to pay for it.

    The item has been paid for, the sale was made. It is now YOUR alternator to sell if you wish. Does anyone see me, selling the CORRECT alternator for HIS application, being in the wrong?

    Im sorry man, but there is no reason for me to issue you a refund.

    I am going to bed, and unfourtunatley will not be here to defend my side of the story, but I will check in the morning.

    Thanks guys.

    Thought you could only file a claim within a month anyway?

    I've dealt with him in person a few times, he never seemed sketchy in any way. I hope you guys get this resolved!

    Glad to see this has gone nowhere.

    Maybe he has realized he is in the wrong.

    if dom can confirm it supposed to fit the engine that you and blados have, then the mechanic is an fact a jackass and blados should get a second opinion
    I agree, some mechanics, and depending upon the garage/ mechanic he took it too, most around our area are complete fvcktards. I think pics should be taken of the alt and motor mount, and the mounting bolt holes on the engine to see if maybe there's some kind of misunderstanding, or if it's correct and the mechanic is infact retarded.

    Re: Blados = Things looky sketchy.

    Blados is a cool dude from what I know. But yeah, def. needs to take it to another shop to get another opinion before you take something back that you sold to him. I don't think a refund is nec. at this point.

    Re: Blados = Things looky sketchy.

    Basically Blados says it fits but not to the mechanics liking... If those bolts are properly tightened i dont see why it would cause any issues?? And Paypal will not issue a refund if the seller can provide proof he shipped the equipment and it was not damaged cause it fits but not to his liking.

    Re: Blados = Things looky sketchy.

    I had mounting issues with my Mechman alt for my 300M. It just needed someone with skills on how to install it. He may have taken it to a place that is just used to installing stock alts like Pep Boys or some place like that.

    Should be pretty simple to make up a "support" bracket out of flat steel or aluminum...
