Installed Rewound Alternator Rotor, now blowing fuses.

Turns out I'm a little thick sometimes.....

Anyway... Rewindin' a rotor for a customer. there was some damage on the outer ring... it's outside the brush contact area, so it'll work just fine, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out what damaged it.... :umm:
'bout a half hr ago the lightbulb lit up....
Now I know.

Designing a system where you can mix up screws and cause damage... and then not putting a WARNING in the manual is engineering malpractice imho.
Glad it was a relatively easy fix.
The older now XS650 and older now mechanic in me blinked and breathed,followed my gut feeling and retraced my tracks.Your rotor is working
It's fixed Don. Ask your tank why the sad face.....

:laugh2:
