Alternator ?????
« on: October 08, 2019, 03:00:25 PM »
Here's a stupid..

Can the 17 amp rotor be used with the 32 amp stator?

It fits and the chain lines up. I'm concerned about a possible difference in the magnets.

shouldn't matter. the stator would have different turns and wire diameter for higher current.
there is no doubt different types of magnet materials , ceramics etc

search away on material but I doubt it would matter, just sales pitch I reakon

Check number of poles and number of magnets.

The newer style rotor has the magnets glued in they are encased in plastic and in pairs?
