Re: Rebuild your own alternator?

Run the nut off the stud holding the left side of the diode trio. It comes out the back, it's also the Battery terminal.

view from the back:

Notice the three bolts holding the brush holder and regulator. Two of them have an insulating sleeve and one doesn't. The one that doesn't is the one closest to the case.

Remove the insulated bolt holding the connector between the stator and brush holder, set it aside. Pull the other, smaller bolt holding the diode trio, lift it out and set aside.

At this point the regulator is just sitting there, take it out and set aside.

Support the back half of the case and drive the rear bearing out. This was actually the hardest part of this whole job. That thing was tight in there, I had to really hammer it with a dead blow hammer.

Tom Terrific or Terrible Tom, depending on the phase of the moon, passing cosmic rays or other factors not fully understood except by my wife.
