Aftermarket Starter/ Generator for 154

Postby Duner » Sat Sep 15, 2018 8:44 am

Does anyone have experience with aftermarket S/G? I see them for sale from $110.00 and up.

If you still have the original S/G, rebuild it yourself. Probably in the neighborhood of $20- in auto parts store parts.

If you don't want to or feel confident, it should cost you around $100- to have a professional shop rebuild the S/G.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I think I need a charge field coil for my 154 S/G. I have a spare S/G from something that did work till the DE bearing failed with out making any noise that I could hear and it started to smoke. I switched my good armature into the spare and it did not start or charge so I assume I need at least one or both field coils in it too and possibly and armature. The spare has a bushing in CE . I prefer a ball bearing like the 154 S/G has.
That is why I am curious if anybody has used the aftermarket replacement S/G.

IMO, if you don't have the tools and/or knowledge to test the SG to determine what is wrong with it, it's time to get a professional repair shop to diagnose the problems and determine the cost to repair or replace. Otherwise you are just swapping parts and hope it works.
