Answer

Hello,

Well, you haven't many choices here. Battery has to maintain 13.2-14.2 volts running. You need to find the specs for amperage the alt should be putting out.

If the battery is good and holds up to a carbon pile test. Battery is good.

Now, you didn't say what you are using for alternators, but I am wondering if they are used. You didn't say, but if bought new at Autozone, they usually come with a lifetime guaranty.

You need a new alternator, not used.
