Re: [omc-boats] Prestolite Alternators on Sterndrives

The rotor on my Prestolite alternator went out 3-4 years ago and could find parts for the life of me (I had pretty good luck up until then).  I couldn't find anyone to rebuild it nor a NOS replacement.  I finally bought one of those new replacement units with the built in regulator.  Its seen 2-3 years of service now and I must say it works like a champ.  I'd have to dig up the exact model I bought, but it was very resaonably priced and I found it by searching the part # for the original Prestolite alternator (347xxx if I remember right).  I definitely recommend this route as an effective way around expensive NOS parts!
