              • Alternator TLC

                A few weeks ago I noticed quite a bit of rust on my alternator brackets, so it took the alternator off to clean 'em up. I also noticed when I spun the pulley, the bearings sounded a bit crunchy.

                I decided to go the route a previous poster went and have the brackets powder coated. A bench grinder with a wire wheel, and an hour later, they were all cleaned up.

                I replaced both the bearings at a cost of $10. My brushes looked in great shape and still had about 75% left. I didn't bother with a bench test since it was working fine... it just looked like crap. I used a little crocus cloth on the slip rings and they were good to go.

                The powder coater said it may take 2 weeks unless they get more to do in gloss black. They were done in 3 days.
                Powder coating cost me $22. These won't be rusting again for a while.

                I cleaned up the windings frame and painted it so it would be black again, and cleaned up the rust on the alt frame screws. I used new mounting bolts, and cleaned up and painted the pulley.
                It's all pretty now.

                      • Here are my winter projects ...they should be finished in a few weeks...

                        - 1100# custom X30 rear locker sacs, piggy backed into my newly adjustable factory ballast system. .. waiting to see these. Will take pics.

                        - super sac'r with a timer on the helm switch for 400# intervals and new thru hull. No dash plate being install, completely concealed system for adhoc sacs.

                        - Wireless clarion remote with y cable

                        - u/w abyss S1800 lights

                        - rear facing lights w/dome light

                        - ski pylon, Kyle's good rant motivated me to work harder on my skiing.

                        - I added a Bad Elf Pro GPS with Navionics HD iPad app.

                          • Very nicely done JDC
                            Thinking of pulling my windshield frame on the XStar and powder coating it black
                            Do I need to strip them clean of the factory finish before I drop them off for Powder coating?

                            • Dealer, but they are avail on eBay. Almost went with the new multi color lights from abyss, but held back.

                                Thanks.
                                That's the first time I've had anything powder coated. Everyone I talked to said the part to be coated needs to be stripped clean. I'd call the place that will do the coating and ask them. Personally, I'd have it clean and smooth before coating.
