These remanufacturing procedures are recommended minimum guidelines (with theunderstanding that being more critical is acceptable) for use by remanufacturers/rebuilders of alternators to promote consistent reliability, durability, and safety of remanufactured alternators. Installation of remanufactured or rebuilt products is often an economical way to repair an application even though the products may not be identical to original equipment parts. Before processing any part, a remanufacturer/rebuilder should determine if the original design and present condition of the core are suitable for remanufacturing/rebuilding so as to provide durable operation of the part as well as acceptable performance when installed on the application. The remanufacturer/rebuilder should also consider the safety aspects of the product and any recommendations of the original manufacturers related to remanufacturing or rebuilding this product.
While these procedures are meant to be universal in application, various product types have unique features of dimension and design which may require special remanufacturing/rebuilding processes and tests that are either not covered by or are exceptions to these procedures.
