    I have an 08 f350 6.4 diesel and my alternator took a crap on me yesterday while plowing/salting. I took it apart today and the think has a dime size burn mark on it. I have a 8' 6 pro plus western and 1.5yd salt dogg spreader and light bar on my truck. Anyone else with these similar issues??

    Did the truck have the snow plow prep package? When you said you took it a part...were is the dime size spot. Any pictures? Do not cheap out when choosing repair parts.
