My alternator is dead... I went to a local Yanmar dealer and was quoted $880.30 plus shipping and taxes for a new one. That seems ridiculous to me. He suggested I send it off to get rebuilt but it would take a week or so and he couldn't quote me a price until the people that actually rebuild them received the alternator. This doesn't put me in a very good situation if they come back with high price, so I told him I would think about it.

I am looking for alternatives. Does anybody have any experience with replacing or rebuilding an alternator?

Thanks in advance.

rebuilding alternators is a very common job. I would try it first. Check with a reputable garage and ask them who they recommend. We have an outstanding place here in Wisconsin.
