I put a replacement alternator on my T. I accidentally touched the alternator body with the wire that go's to it. Now it's not charging. Did I fry it t? Yes your right I should have gone with a generator!
Might have "blown" a diode any "Good" shop should be able to fix that inexpensively! now for the bad news... most shops these days don't fix alternators and if they do they want to ask What is the application meaning what make and model car did this alternator come out of originally, without that bit of information they give you a blank look!
Thank you! Tim
There are plenty of automotive electrical shops around. You just have to look. It might take a little drive to get there though. The Model T guys I know running alternators who have problems with them take 'em to a shop about 50 miles way. They deal with magnetos and starters as well. Used them many times. Very reasonable as well.
It's not too difficult to disassemble the alternator to check/replace diodes, brushes, etc. The internal voltage regulator is a different deal, and may be the source of your problem, good luck. jb
