Have you been looking for a permanent solution to everyone’s least favorite engine problem: the buildup of belt dust? Then you must be in the market for a new serpentine pulley kit. And you should be. A new serpentine pulley kit will substantially improve the output of your alternator. There is no fear of damaging either your engine or your electrical system. In fact, you can now put more load on your engine, even when charging at idle and when on the hook.

Why should you get one? For one, you will all but eliminate the buildup of very fine belt dust that accumulates and penetrates susceptible electric components, not to mention the engine itself. A new serpentine pulley system can allow you to drive a high output alternator that for the first time runs the engine at idle as the alternator creates load that ultimately keeps the engine in good fettle, all while not damaging the engine in any way. Space permitting, you can even add a second alternator, which improves your engine life even more. For the most bang for your buck, a new serpentine pulley kit in conjunction with a high output alternator is a solid and popular investment.

And there is no better way to go than with an Electromaax kit. They are used in combination with a high output marine alternator that ranges from 80 to 180 amps. Although Electromaax is very common, other brands of alternators could be an option, including the new A.T. series or the Balmar 6. There are now multi-grooved serpentine kits for most Yanmar marine engine models that go back as far as the mid-1970s. Serpentine kits for many other popular brands of engines are available or, in some cases, are currently being developed. It is just that the Electromaax optimum charging system just happens to be manufactured and designed in the United States, and in turn is made with top-notch materials here at home.

For improved reliability and performance, try to ensure that your serpentine kit:

  • Has a 10-rib belt rather than a single-V or double-V.
  • Is an anodized type II version, which prevents corrosion.
  • Has a machined 6061 aluminum structure, which allows it to be strong but light.
  • Has grade 8 or 10.9 zinc-plated flange nuts and head bolts, which provide superior quality and function.
