I was in the process of upgrading my lack luster standard 55amp alternator to a 120amp with external regulator. When I took the alternator off, this what I found. Very disappointing considering there is only 330hours on the motor. It looks like some cheap cast iron. I think I'll take it by a machine shop and see if I have a heart attack with the cost. I don't think I'll have an option as a 120amp alternator will put a serious amount of force on the bracket.
Anyone ever had one of these machined?
