BACKGROUND: 06 PSD. My charging system failed the other day, never charging over 11.3V. My batteries are new and test well after charging so I was pretty sure it was an alternater issue (no change in Volts after starting). I pulled the alternater and the rectifier checks out as still one way. The alternater is a relatively new (less than 10K) 200A Db electrical just out of warranty. So I have ordered a new regulator and a backup cheapo alternater.
When I pulled the alternater and put it on the bench, no less than 3 globs of solder fell out of it. My concern is that maybe a glob created a short in the windings that blew something. I keep reading about fusible links but can't find them. Can anyone help on these?
Mega high amp fuses are another good option.
