Oops..alternator issue

Anyone ever strip out the positive post on the alternator? Also broke about 1/4" off of it. Just wondering if anyone has an experience taking it apart and putting a new one in there.

Yup! Worse yet, snapped mine right off making it useless. I took it right back to pep boys and they gave me a new one, no questions asked. Is yours new or are you simply re-installing the old one?

going to be re-installing the old one unfortunately. Worked fine, just broke and stripped during removal. Looked like the nut caused it. I tried reversing the 1 nuts so I could still get a bite, just wouldn't thread.

That sucks man. Not sure if you can simply weld it on there or not... maybe a ton of solder or something? Would probably vibrate off eventually.

Welding would destroy the diodes and solder probably wouldn't hold. At work we have connectors that join two threaded rods together so if you can find one of those at a hardware store you could try re-threading it to the fine thread of that snapped off bolt
