Has anyone ever had their alternator rebuilt as opposed to just buying a reman or brand new one? I think the bearings are starting to go on mine and i have always just bought a reman but i know there are people out there that just rebuild them.
Looking for everyones .02 with pros and cons. I know i can get a reman for about 100 dollars so i didnt know if it would be worth it or not.
A 95? It is close to 20 yrs old. Don't you think you got your money's worth. How long do you think it should last? In addition to the bearings the brushes should be replaced, and the slip rings checked. The windings could be meggered to verify they are still at factory spec. While I don't know if the re-manufacturing process covers all of this, 100 bucks is relatively cheap, compared to the usual scenario. Parts don't normally fail on sunny fall days when you have a couple of hours to waste.
You could certainly get your replacement and try re-building your unit, just to keep it stock.

Yes and no. You will need to swap the main cable connection from your stock yj alternator over to the ZJ alternator since they are180 degrees off. You should also be aware that the ZJ ran a 6 rib belt and thenYJ is a 5 rib. It is easy to swap the pulleys but not required. The last and biggest thing is that you will need to upgrade your. Artery cables. Do a search and you will find lots of opinions on the proper gauge wire.
