alternator refurbish

Post by keith » Mon Oct 27, 2014 11:46 pm

anyone recommend a place to refurbish an alternator? i used to go to a guy in Donnybrook, D4, but he's closed it seems.
I have several Lucas units that are either short-circuited (draining battery overnight) or open-circuit (not charging, no ign. light) and a nice non-Lucas (Denso?) unit, any one of them would do.

alternatively, what about replacing the rectifier/control (?) pack in them? how hard is it and where do i get the parts?

there's a guy up Rocky Valley in Kilmacanogue that's been doing these for years too, used to use him quite a lot in my earlier years living in Bray, just can't remember his name at the mo?
