Hi. I was supplied with a replacement (recon) alternator for my 2002 Boxster S but it had the solid pulley fitted instead of the freewheeling / overrunning clutch type. My garage fitted it anyway but found that it only charged at 8.4 volts. The alternator supplier is telling me that the reason it only delivered 8.4v was due to the incorrect pulley being fitted rather than any internal fault with the alternator which I find difficult to believe. We fitted another alternator with the correct pulley & this one charges fine. Has anyone any experience of running a "solid" alternator drive in place of the "freewheel" type please? Does it in fact result in a lower charge output or is this a red herring by the alternator supplier to avoid picking up the second set of labour charges. Thanks
