Hi iam not sure what the running temp would be sorry?

I have bought reconditioned starters and alternators when i used to work for a haulage company for vans cars and trucks and i would say that its not uncommon for some recondition units to get returned shortly after be recondition hence the price you pay compared to a brand new unit but i suppose it also depends on the company and there workmanship??on saying that have you had the battery tested? it might be that its not holding its charge all that well hence why the alternator is working harder than normal,

Hope that helps Donald
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
