Re: Do shiney alternators produce more amps?

i guess about 10-12 hours... ive been working on it every night for the last week or so. I came across this alternator at a swap meet so i didnt have to do without my car's charging system while i was doing it.

Re: Do shiney alternators produce more amps?

Did you crack the case so as not to get filings in the wires????
How did you polish it?

Re: Do shiney alternators produce more amps?

the whole alternator comes apart, you have to remove the pulley and the long bolts. to remove the pulley you will need a rattle gun and a pulley puller. the hard bit is to first remove the rough casting surface. i used a combination of sandpaper and a file when i got impatiant :)

after that i switched to some fine sandpaper then used Autosol metal polish. sounds easy but is quite time consuming. that said, It was a piece of piss compared to polishing my LTD rims.

I've just put it on and suprisingly the swap meet special actually worked! i was expecting to have to swap my internals over.
