Just received my rebuilt alternator. All numbers are the same but its just a little too big for slot. Is it ok if i grind it a little or should I just return?

If you're sure it's the same, I don't see what shaving the sleeve off would hurt.

Unless they used the wrong sleeve, it may be that the sleeve was not pressed properly and sticking out of the casting too far. Some tappity tap on the sleeve might do the trick.

Ok, shes in!! I pressed it some more with my cheapy harbor freight shop press and shaved off the slightest amount of sleeve and was able to keep it a very tight fit.
