Auto Electrician rewind old Alternator

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by XBCoupeJota, Apr 11, 2008.

  1. Anyone give me a recommendation for an auto electrician who can re-wind my alternator charge windings in the Brookvalle Sydney area.

  2. Do you mean an alternator or a generator? Why not just buy a new alternator - they aren't exactly expensive.

    If it's a generator, then different story - don't know anyone in Sydney, but there's a bloke in Queensland that some vintage car people use.
  3. if its an alternator and one of the older ones and its failed.
    Crack it open
    find the little broken copper wire
    grab it unwind it once and solder it back onto where its supposed to go.

    Doesnt usaly work but worth a try
