REBUILT ALTERNATORS - ANYONE BETTER THAN ANOTHER?

Recommended Posts

"They all claim they are the best"  just buy the cheapest  from O'reillys or Advance Auto Parts, with lifetime warranties. Keep your receipt, if fail just take it  back. Keep your original if you still got it.

I've always had good luck with the rebuilt alternators and starters from NAPA.  I've had problems with those rebuilt items from Orielly's.  I don't know why, they usually come from the same rebuilders.  Maybe the stuff that ends up at NAPA is a little higher quality.

I consider my self fortunate that a local shop rebuilds these two items.  My last NAPA starter was a fiasco.  Just my experience.  Brian

 

Funny, just the opposite in my area.  We have a local generator shop that rebuilds alternators, generators and starters.  Their workmanship is good.  I think the parts they use are poor quality.  It's always a gamble to have them rebuild something.  If you have an odd item, they are your best (usually only) option.

I have had all the box stores fail on me..

I take mine to a local rebuilder who uses all usa parts.. haven't had a failure yet..

Had him fix a Chinese generator/starter for a golf cart from amazon...working for 2+ years now..
