    No no on the local alt shop most are no better. Just saying no idea what alln is wrong til they open her up but chances are $150+ on the repair.

    Price will reflect the amp size. I had 5 alrs go bad from Tenney. But got a full refund they master card. I can get you a quote to have it fixed if you like from singer

    Best of luck on the repairs.

    A lot of them are BAD. It may be something simple that caused it to fail, but it'll be a good bit more getting it back to non fire hazard status.

    Seeing as how you're in ohio, give Tom a call at Ohio Generator. Does fantastic repairs and builds some custom monsters. Maybe be able to save you a couple days wait on shipping as well.

    Re: whos fixing tenney alternators??

    Singer is also in Ohio I can give you a quote. But what I can tell is that mike usaully will just use the case and maybe the pulley. Not much more than that. To fix or rebuild it would $80 less than a new one in most Tenney alt cases.

    Re: whos fixing tenney alternators??

    **** i hate to see everyone having problems out of these alts like this. 2 of my teammates each has 2 350a alts as well the voltage regulators from Tenney, 1 of the guys only runs 1 alt because he's working on getting a bracket for both, the other runs both of his and neither have had a problem since they had them and its been a bit as well. they got theres before he tried to "merge or become" a bigger company or what ever he called himself doing. I hope that you can get your alt working correctly. Good Luck
