Hi Dave,

Another thing you may try is to delete the belt guard.

When I did the re-route thing, rather than fabing a new guard, I just kept it off.

Things seem to run cooler without it.

In my case, the belt guard is not really necessary, as access to the front of the engine while running is an unusual scenario.

good luck - And Yes cool alternators are happy alternators.

bshanafelt: Dave's photo at post #29 shows he's already opened up his belt guard considerably...I don't think there's anything more to be gained there. And no belt guard is really not a good idea for most installations IMHO--accidents do happen

I think that fans don't have a hub so are as thick as the fan metal, about 1/8"
