I think the alternator belt you need is Gates 9360. I always have my alternators rebuilt locally to prevent having this problem. You might try a Dayco 17360 also.

Are you using a lithium battery?

No, it's a Deka ETX12 agm.  Lots of Festiva guys use them, both with the original 1.3 and with 1.6 swaps.

That thing is only 180 cold cranking amps. Is that really enough to start the engine with? If so, that's fantastic. It looks like it weighs only a few pounds. Where do you have it mounted?

You can swap connectors, yes. I have put the Mitsu units on cars originally equipped with the Bosch unit.
The lower mounting bolt is different. You will need to find a correct bolt. (a good hardware store may have something long enough)

There was a cutoff date where they switched alternators, I don't recall the exact date. As I recall, most of the 91s with 90 build dates had them. 6/91 should have had the Mitsu unit

Neither is really considered better, though most seem to switch to the Mitsubishi unit given the option

There is a belt that fixes most of the squealing/slipping/breaking issues, I'm not sure if it's the one you have. Maybe someone else can chime in on that one

     I recently bought an 1991 XR2 built 6/91 with only 34,000 miles. Before I bought it, the prior owner had a new alternator installed. Within a few weeks in my hands the alternator belt broke, the replacement belt never stopped slipping. I did some research and found that 1991s had 85 amp Bosch alternators. The one installed on my XR2 was clearly the Mitsu, and worse, with a too-wide pulley. I found a rebuilt 1991 Bosch/AC Delco unit, with correct pulley, and asked my garage to put it in. As we discovered, Bosch & Mitsu connectors are different. The mechanic said I had to use a Mitsu; could not just change connectors. I needed to get the car on the road, and with no new Mitsu with the correct pulley available I had a wider belt (Gates 7350) installed. That mostly works. Slips sometimes only when starting. Now time for a permanent fix.
     Was my 1991 built with the Bosch unit or were some built with Mitsu?  Was the mechanic wrong, can I just swap connectors and use the Bosch?  Or should I get a proper pulley for the Mitsu?

Sorry Guys,
Local pickup only.
I understand. But REALLY don't want to do that. IK it's not much, but I'll chip in another $100 bucks off for a member here. Much rather have someone in person see what they are getting. Will also included the additional parts I have left from the vehicle (lights, cluster & what not).
Thanks for your interest

So I've got an acquaintance on the forum here whom contacted me about this posting. He is interested in the engine, ECU, and harness, and as I already stated, I'm interested in the transmission. We'd love to take it all off of your hands.

Would you not be willing to ship it, even if I covered all the expenses and time investment involved with prepping it to be shipped? If not I understand, really I do. But I need to know as soon as possible, so that either him or I can arrange to make the cross-country trek to pick the drivetrain up.

Let me know, thanks.

I did manage to get the broken part out of the oil pump housing. Using 10 mm Pin punch and a hammer. then replaced it with a aluminium tube purchased from local hardware store.
But before that I purchased a complete housing just in case.
Now have a spare.
All good.

Good deal

Both the solenoid and wax parts of mine worked but the water passage was stopped up. I soaked it in WD40, carb cleaner and rust remover. None of that worked. Finally found one. Thanks
