Gotta question for anyone savvy enough to reply. So I bought a 250 amp alternator to replace my old one. However when I was installing it I over-tightened the post that leads the positive wire from the alternator to the PCM and snapped it in half. I removed the plastic protective cover for the positive wire ( i was gonna do the big 3 upgrade anyway) and used a rubber washer I had laying around to isolate the positive post and wire from the alternator case. Worked for about half a day. Late last night when driving home I noticed my Voltage dropped from the 14v it was right after install to about 12v, by the time I got home I had the check gauges light on and a battery voltage of around 10v. The washer moved, allowing the positive wire to contact the alternator case. I figure that fried the rectifier bridge, correct me if i'm wrong. So heres my question: Can I use parts from my old stock alternator to replace the damaged parts in the new one, Or is it best to just suck it up and buy a new alternator?
