Before he jumps the gun, and tries to point all the blame in my direction, this needed to come out into the open.
Earlier this morning I opened this PM:
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.
I then replied with this:
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.
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.
