    Anyone know a parts place that carries a quality high amp alternator, 130 /140 amp? All my parts places around here can only get a 94 amp one for my 86 K30!

    I have a local electrical shop rebuild mine. They can also change the stator plate, I believe it is called, to get more output from it. It is much cheaper than a new one or even a rebuilt from a parts store. A couple of years ago my dads 4 wheeler starter went bad and a new one from the sports center was $210.00. I brought it to johns auto electric and they rebuilt it for $38.50. They even had the parts on hand......nice!

    Yes, go to a rebuild shop. I've had alot of stuff rebuilt. A meyer plow motor, a Salt Dogg spinner motor, etc. These guys do everything from starter motors for farm tractors to alternators. My guy knows his stuff, treats me fair and honest!:D

    I had already called two places plus the parts stores when I posted this. Was kinda looking to see if you guys had any ideas about chain stores or online you had good luck with. A buddy of mine used one of the places to rebuild his winch motor. I had used the other in the past for a John Deere loader starter. I took mine to him he is going to rebuild it to 140 amps for under $100. Had to order the parts out of Memphis so it will be Monday before I get it back. I have plenty or parts trucks so I will swap on a used one until then. Mine was still charging but when it got hot the plow wouldn't't work unless you turned off all the lights!!!
