So I am now just minutes away from completing the re-install of my motor. But I went and torqued the battery stud in half and now cannot connect the alt to the battery. I know, tighter is not always better...I was a little too enthusiastic and was used to the bigger accessory bracket bolts.

Anyway, all the stores are telling me they want an arm and a leg for a new (reman) alternator. I hear plenty of horror stories about these so am trying to not go this route. Also am looking at getting it fixed locally if I can find a decent electrical shop (anybody know of a place in Spokane, WA)?

The alternator is functionally fine besides the battery stud...does anybody know of a rebuild kit for these 110 A mitsubishi units? None of the parts houses around here seem to sell such a beast...

Thanks, Brian

Is there enough of the stud sticking out that you could solder the wire to it?
