    Default Motorola Alternator

    Hi out there,
    Looking to rebuild a SEV Motorola alternator of my R8 Gordini. Need specific parts. Does anyone know where I might look?

    Volvo Penta marine motors were some times fitted with SEV Motorola alternators. May be a dealer for them might have bits? Otherwise ebay is your friend. My 17 TS had them as well but I got the bearings and brushes replaced at a local auto elecy but that was all he could do. I fitted a Bosch to my R15 in lieu. A couple of Toyota ones have the right offsets etc. I have it written down somewhere if you don't care about it being completely original.

    What parts are you after?

    Bearings can be got from your local bearing suppliers

    Brushes can be got from Ashdown Ingram Auto Electrical, Catalogues, Quantum Pro: Ashdown Ingram take in your old brushes and get them matched up.

    Slip rings can be machined on a lathe if not to badly worn.

    These alternators are easy to re-condition and not very expensive if you are handy and have a vice, soldering iron, bearing puller and some basic hand tools.
