    Help With Identifying a Part on My FJ40

    I also see a hose with blue tape around it not hooked to anything.

    Help With Identifying a Part on My FJ40

    Try to zoom out so we can get a better view. It's a bit close to really see much.

    Oh yes I do, forgot that. Will have to bring that with me when I go install the grill. And if I remember, I will get a video posted. One last task left. I discovered a PO had ran the ignition wire to the regulator off the ignition switch. I had pulled that since it wasn't shown on the wiring...

    Btw, I went with the black finish because it's a high heat paint that I baked on in the oven. I also did that with my oil filter.

    Yes, I turned the fan around after I realized what I had done. Haha

    Well the alternator is back together finally and working. I have learned a few things. - pay attention to insulating spacers between the rectifier plate and the terminal post contact area on the positive side only. These are not needed on the negative side and must NOT be used on the negative...

    Well, judging how the bearings fit in both housing very similar, I'm thinking that when the two halves are bolted together it seats the bottom bearing against the housing and keeps the bearing secure.

    Also I have a newer housing that appears to fit similar to my existing housing with either rotor.

    I have two identical rotors that both fit the same in the housing. No apparent wear in the housing. So I'm wondering if the bolting the halves together put sufficient force to hold the lower bearing in place?

    Loctite makes several variations of Bearing Mount and Bearing Retaining compound. Loctite 620, 680. There is more play then I would like, although once the top is in place it spins OK. I would be worried that the outer race could slip in the bearing seat.

    Alternator

    No, the outer race. When placing the rotor with bearing into the housing it seems to slide in the bearing seat fairly easy. I did replace both bearings, but with identical part numbers as the original. I also verified both with calipers and they are the same size. Do they require some bearing...

    Well getting things back together now. After a seating the rotor it seems to slide on pretty easy. I kind of expected a few taps of the hammer. Is there a recommended sealant to hold that bearing from spinning?

    Thanks, but I really don't want to desolder anything. I think I might get a can of Liquid electrical tape from Star Brite. Or insulating varnish.

    Yes, I've already had an issue trying to swap stator into another housing. Yes, it was too big. This alternator works fine (I had it tested after receiving), it just needed the new brush assembly. And the exterior cleaned up.

    Nothing major, just some wear and tear of the rectifier assembly vibrating on the stator windings.

    Alternator

    So on my existing stator there are some wear marks on the windings in and under the rectifier assembly. What type of insulation would be good to provide some better protection in that area?

    Ahhhh, now we are delving into generations. I should of figured that it wouldn't be so easy. All my blasting is done using soda media. Before and after attached.

    Alternator

    Was getting the brush assembly together for a preliminary fit and I discovered my working alternator does not fit in my housing. So I guess no swapping to the cleaner housing. The older one is about 1/4" bigger stator and I'm guessing the rotor is probably bigger. So I will be taking all the...
