A friend had the same problem with his '98 Cougar. There was supposed to be a spacer behind the pulley. The rebuilds he was getting didn't have it. Perhaps that's your issue as well. Another thing is if you have a large plug on the alternator replace it. They were notorious for burning out. HTH. -Jim
