I'd like to see you work on the alternator end of the problem rather than
a different pulley, because I think the alternator is the problem.  I put
my Esslinger pulley on BEFORE my alternator died, and I NEVER had problems
with cooling or charging.  Only after the removal of the stock alternator
did all my charging problems come along...
