Annapolis Alternator Shop

Annapolis Alternator Shop

Well, Murphy's heard we're going to be leaving Annapolis soon and
has arrived for a visit.

I need an alternator shop in Annapolis or nearby that someone's
happy with. Of the, count 'em, 5 alternators aboard, one is
working and the other non-failed one hasn't yet been tested; it
may work, but I don't want to tempt Murphy by having an unknown
spare. Worse, I don't have the appropriate equipment to pull off
a good pulley top swap them; one of the old ones, I conclude, was
the reason I was eating belts before things settled down.

One of the alternators I'm taking back to Charleston as it's new
and their fault for the failure. The other two not working I'm
taking somewhere to get made functional. Thus this post.

Help??

To save time and bandwidth, if you can help, please respond
directly to me skip gundlach (no space, all one word) at gmail
dot com. Thanks.

$39 later, on the same day, I had a diagnosis of dead on two, and two working alternators with proper pulleys. Same day service, not too bad at all...
