Alliance Truck Parts Announces New Alternator Line


Louisville, Ky. – March 20, 2013 – Alliance Truck Parts, a leading provider of replacement truck parts, is pleased to introduce the new Alliance alternator line. Rated for the higher temperatures found in 2007 and 2010 EPA emissions-compliant engines, the alternators will debut at the 2013 MATS show.

The new alternator line covers a wide range of applications that meet or exceed current OEM specifications for quality, fit and finish. The heavy-duty alternators are engineered of all-new parts for real durability in all major heavy-duty applications.

“Alliance Truck Parts is proud to offer this new alternator line, continuing our efforts to provide customers a strategic line-up of need-it-now and frequent-replacement parts,” said Todd Biggs, director, aftermarket parts and service marketing for Daimler Trucks North America. “Adding rotating electrics to our product offering is another example of how we work to meet our customers’ needs with a quality product at a great value.”

For true all truck makes compatibility, Alliance Truck Parts alternators are available with pad mount or J180 mount options. Amperage ratings range from the compact 444 model’s 150 Amps, up to a full 210 Amp rating. To accommodate the higher temperatures in today’s EPA-compliant engines, temperature ratings for all models are at 125° C with the exception of the compact model which carries a 110° C rating.

Other new features for various models include a redesigned solid lead frame rectifier with a welded diode assembly that runs cooler and lasts longer, strong low-end performance, sealed brush box, case ground, heavy duty front and rear bearings, dual internal fan, and e-coated housing for maximum corrosion resistance.

Alliance Truck Parts alternators utilize a solid lead frame, creating a single, solid connection to all of the internal diodes as well as improving shock and vibration resistance. Plus, as with all Alliance products, they come with a full one year unlimited-mile warranty.
