Re: Volvo TMD 22 24v Alternator not charging #solution

Hi Jose,
I think we have the same alternator and set up.
I have changed the wiring to run with a WakeSpeed controller for the new Lithium batteries. You definitely need a knowledgeable electrician to do this. I think that the Leece-Neville alternator is practically bulletproof. 
The twin belts were breaking every year or so and after testing many belts I decided to fit a larger serpentine belt system which was sourced in Germany. Unfortunately it was for a car engine not for a Volvo truck engine, I have attached a video of what happened to the alloy pulley set up on the alternator after about 5 hours running. 
The alternator now has a scoured and bent shaft. Now getting a new alternator (same as original) with strong steel pulley.
