FD alternator rectifiers source apsrt from Mazda??
« on: July 20, 2014, 01:38:29 PM »
Apart from Mazda has anyone found a source for the 100 Amp alternator rectifier blocks? I need to fix a dead alternator. I have bench tested the regulator and it\'s fine, but the rectifier is dead on one section of the bridge. I think the alternators are made by Mitsubishi. I am sure *SOME* auto electrical place in the UK will list them, but who?  Thanks for reading.

Would it be an awful lot of trouble if I asked for the part number, and if you ascertained it was definitely the right one please? Thanks for the info, there are dozens of the damned things, many very similar with subtle differences :( Cheers Shaun!

Can you seen any numbers on the part your replacing ?  If you can\'t best bet is to ring them and see if they can fish out what part it should be. I didn\'t use them in the end, I have somebody local to me that rebuilds starters and alternators and they said it was fine.
