    Alternator questions (zane, ramos???)

    i have a major dimming problem in my car and since a cap or new battery won't help since my alternator is so weak, i was just wondering how much it would cost for me to rewind it. i have a 00 honda civic and i believe it has a 60 amp alternator. i'm looking to have it rewound to 100 or 120 amps, can i do this and how much? i dont really kno too much about this alternator stuff, so a run down would be nice. i was looking thru the web and saw that alternators run for like 300-700 bucks, but i found a 100 amp alternator on ebay for like 120-130. can i just drop that one in on ebay and rock? or do i need to buy something else? it seems kind of odd cuz the price difference is so big. any help here would be appreciated. thank you.

    The actual rewind price is contingent upon several variables- material used, current requirement, case size, etc. A standard rewind here can range anywhere in the neighborhood of $45-$300.

    You do have a fairly popular car, so finding a direct bolt on alternator should not be too much trouble.

    Check out www.nopi.com , www.summitracing.com , www.superstreetonline.com , www.mralternator.com .

    Concerning the alternator you found on e-bay- just make sure it is one that will fit your car- not all alternators are suitable for all applications.

    take it easy,
