I think I got an alternator with the wrong pulley for my 94 3.0.
What size is on yours? Thanks.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
About 2.5" outside diameter of flange.

Thanks. Mine measures 2.75 inches. But a replacement at Advance measures about 2.5.
I looked at a friends 4 cylinder and it's alternator measured 2.5. So, I think they got swapped somewhere along the line.

You might be approaching this from the wrong angle, just a thought.

I have two known 4.0 alternators, one measures 2 7/16 ( flange O.D. ), the other 2 3/4. It also seems to me they have different size flanges, the sheaves are also built differently. They are both Motorcraft but from different years

I have no ideas as to finding a better method tho :/

Might have something to do with the water pump or A/C pulley or tensioner or idler dimensions. Thanks.
