Hey All,

I'm new to the forum. and would appreciate your help.

I was wondering if the industry has an bus alternator guru? I'm working on an transit bus alternator issue and I'm looking for someone to tear down a failed alternator and give me a potential failure analysis. Are there any great service companies out there that could perform this for me?

If there is a better forum for me to post this inquiry in please let me know.

Thanks,
Chris

Welcome to Bus Talk!

This forum is mainly for bus enthusiasts, so I don't know how likely you will find the information you seek, here.

I would suggest checking with one of the factory service centers of either the manufacturer of your bus, or of its engine...

Good luck! Smile

Chris, I'd suggest two sources, bulletin boards on which I'm active. Both deal with converted (motorhome) coaches, and some transits. There's a wealth of knowledge on maintenance and resources. One is the bulletin board hosted by Bus Conversions Magazine -- www.busconversionmagazine.com -- and the other is Bus Nuts Online --- busnut.com/forum

One of the first questions that will be asked is your location, since there may be a resource nearby (example, if you're near southern New Jersey, Luke Bonagura is the go-to guy for all maintenance issues).

A few questions:
What kind of bus?
What kind of alternator?
Where are you located?

GBL Rebel,

Sorry. I just saw this. I was notified that I wouldn't have to follow through on the analysis so crisis averted.

Thanks for your response though!
