Alternator Repair

When polishing has reached this state use very fine sandpaper to make the slip rings absolutely smooth.
Press in the bearing (SKF 6201).
Use a  socket having the exact size of the bearing inner ring. Place the socket on top and steadily tap with the hammer in order to push the bearing all the way in. Make sure that the bearing is horizontal.
Do not tap the bearing on the external surface as it will ruin the internals.
Replace the regulator brushes. Place the regulator in the vice and with a metal saw, cut the ends of the brushes and then unsolder the braided lead.
