Balmar Alternator In Indonesia

Well my old Alternator gave out and I need to source a new one. Iím on Gili Gede, (South) Lombok, Indonesia. Bali is close by too so thatís an option.

Has anyone worked with a reliable vendor with quick shipping, because I doubt I can find one locally. Iím open to other options but if I donít get one then Iíll be sailing 2 months to Singapore without an alternator... Iím pretty sure I can get one there.

I found this site and sent a message (they appear to be in Jakarta...
https://wwmarineequipment.com/balmar...vdc-dual-foot/

Iíd like to replace it with the 6 series - 100amp - Dual belt - Dual foot - Balmar kit with ARS-5 regulator as itís probably the closest match to what I have.

Thanks,
austin

I was emailing with Dale and Iím still waiting on a reply from him. Very helpful and quick replies. Iím planning to head toward Singapore and will start planning my replacement when Iím a bit closer.

I tried their website locator and the closest listed was in Phuket. Iím sure I could get one sent anywhere in the world but how long and at what cost....
