I am a retired electrician and a ASE CERTIFIED MECHANIC .

 

Rebuilding and repairing HONDA GOLDWING GL1500, GL1800, alternators and COMP-U-FIRES.
I can also rebuild other brands of alternators, if they are one piece alternators and I can get parts.

I wrote a rebuild manual on the disassembly, testing and rebuilding the GL1500 alternator. I have also made a video showing how I rebuild the GL1500 alternator. I have the parts for the DIY to rebuild his own. I have the parts for you to rebuild your bad alternator. Contact me to purchase a copy of my rebuild manual or video.
