Alternator rebuild

Recommended Posts

Big Jay D

My alternator was going in and out last time the boat was out. So I pulled it and took it to a local shop that rebuilds starters and alternators. The called and said the brushes were toast and after the alternator warmed up it stopped working. Exactly what I was experiencing on the water. They repaired everything, replaced the bearings, sand blasted and painted the case. Installed new hardware and I was out of pocket only $116.

Just thought I would share so some of you might be able to save a few dollars next time an alternator goes out.

Just for a quick reference on what a new one from bakes cost.

Were they able to give you more amperage out of the new build?

When mine stopped working good, I replaced the brushes and volt. regulator (which was attached to the alt.) by myself. Parts were still available back then (2004), not sure now.

I didn't ask about an output increase. I don't have a crazy stereo and I have 2 big batteries so it hasn't been an issue for me.
