Remember when I showed you the tiny hole in the rear case? Well this is how it works. You re-assemble the alt then pull out the brad nail or what ever you used to retain the brushes.
Output Post Insulator
The black plastic ring is to insulate the alternators 12V output stud from the grounded alternator case. Do not forget to reinstall this or you could have a direct short to ground.
Ground Screw & Output Stud
Here you can see that I have reinstalled the ground screw and the retaining bolts for the 12V output stud so the back end is done!
With the front bearing replaced, the internals cleaned, and the case bead blasted and put back together she is ready for a new coat of paint and 2800 more hours.
This is not a difficult job and most any local alternator shop should be able order you the parts you need. I got my front bearing from the local auto electric shop here in Maine for $12.00..
