Re: Rebuild your own alternator?
Bill, the 10SI alt on my 57 pickup died the other day. I tore it down, couldn't see anything wrong with it. I had a new bridge and trio left over from something, I installed them and it works again.
I tore the bridge apart, broke the super brittle plastic frame gizmo doing it. Found the center diode on one side was out. The alt was completely dead, no output whatever. Is that right? Should have put out something with only one diode out, right?
