just testing the H20 -> alt. repair art.?
Posted 11 October 2003 - 04:44 PM
My question is
Should I write up an article for the repair manual or would it basiclly be a waste of time as most just take them to a repair shop or grab a boneyard model?
Here is the work bench and test rig I use when doing repairs.
At this point I'm playing mix and match using good VRs and brush sets in shells with good diodes and windings.
( I know a lot of us use our extra seats for bench chairs)

The pulley idea is a good one Rob. Ive toasted 3 alternators in the last month (on 3 different subes) so its getting agrivating. I can get a new alt for $80, sounds like rebuild parts are close to $50.

Being semi employed has it's advantages and it's dis...
if ya catch my drift.
Mick, good eye there mate, they are XT6 units, one of which I fried, first one I've ever heard gone toast.
Rob, thanks and an under drive pulley would be dachit - EA82 harmonic damper (crank pully) is a two piece affair, tuff turnin' it.
Make a new one or turn it under the outer section, I'll look into it.
Larger pulley for the alt.? Well right now the alt output does not "kick in" untill about 1000 RPM (alt rot) barely idle speed.
I believe the problem with the factory alt is in the "in rush" current when running larger lights ect (my case anyhow) This in rush current takes out the main diodes and or will fry the VR (have seen both along with the charging light diodes go toast)
Brian, School shop class? How bout "derelict's dungeon" Remember guys I have been a "scrounge hound" for going on half century.
Most of the "stuff" you see is a direct result.
Moose the lathe in the backround is a geared head Clausing Colchester.
Smaller one behind it is an Atlas.
Le Blonds - isn't that who holds the umbrellas on the starting grid?? Or are they La Brunettes
Looks like the consensus is "let the shop handle them."

once they are cracked open, its not fun to get them back together, but when you have more time than money, it could pay off.
