Alternator auto repair services with Bellco Repair Center
in Killeen, Tx 76541
The alternator works with the battery to generate power for
the electrical components of a vehicle, like the interior and
exterior lights, and the instrument panel. An alternator
gets its name from the term
alternating current (AC).
Alternators are typically found near
the front of the engine and are
driven by the crankshaft, which
converts the pistons'
up-and-down movement into
Some early model vehicles used a separate drive
belt from the crankshaft pulley to the alternator
pulley, but most cars today have a serpentine belt,
or one belt that drives all components that rely
on crankshaft power. Most alternators are mounted
using brackets that bolt to a specific point on the
engine. One of the brackets is usually a fixed point,
while the other is adjustable
to tighten the drive belt.
