    I had the hood on my truck up the other day to fill my washer fluid, and my buddy noticed that the decal on my alternator said "Remanufactured GM" with the AC/Delco emblem on it. So my question is- did GM put in a remanufactured alternator in the truck new, or was it replaced at some point (before I got the truck)?

    The dealer would install a rebuilt one, worked 32 years at GM truck and never saw a rebuilt part installed at the plant.

    Okay- so it's safe to assume that the alt was replaced at some point before I got the truck?

    They do with Ford too.

    They would label say Ford remanufactured. When they replaced parts.
