I'd ask if the first replacement belt was tensioned properly. I've never heard of a pulsing in a perfectly good alternator cause it to lose a belt.

I had no alternator problems until the mechanic doing the annual elected to change the belt because it had some wear. Until then there had been absolutely no problems with the electrical systems at all.
