I got a full set of UR pulleys on my '97 SE-R on 10/12/04. The very same day the car died and I got a new battery and alternator (not sure what kind of alt., but probably not anything good) and was driving again. 80 days later on 12/31/04, the same thing happened, and though the car is still dead and am not positive yet what failed, it looks like the alternator, and probably the battery as well. I run a basic cd head and 4 speakers (no bass) during all driving at high volume, and an Escort Passport radar detector most of the time. What's killing my alternators? Should I put the stock alternator pulley (and A/C) back on? I still have them and the belt, but would have to take it to the mechanic, as I'm unable to do it myself - plus I wouldn't be able to trouble shoot effectively for months. Any suggestions? Anyone else have this problem? My shop is full of Honda boys who say this has never been a problem for them. Thanks for any help.
