Alternators with fine print clauses
Well, when I got it out of the box, I found that there was a serpentine belt pulley on it. And a note saying that some applications require re-using the original pulley. Now they tell me I needed a pulley. There's not a good way to put the original alternator's pulley on there, as it's press fitted on.
At least the pulley on the Bosch alternator easily removes with a cheap impact wrench. Just be sure not to have the alternator supported only by the pulley when you do this - ask me how I know.
Looks like I may need to go junkyard hunting to find a V-belt pulley.
