Removal of a forward cover of the DELCO-REMY generator

Arrangement of contact rings of a rotor on the DELCO-REMY generator

DELCO-REMY generator
And – nuts of fastening of wires of a winding of the stator;
In – screws of fastening of the brush holder/regulator of tension

1. Remove the generator.
2. Using a chertilka, note the mutual provision of forward and back covers of the generator.
3. Unscrew three coupling bolts and remove a forward cover and a rotor from a back cover (see rice. Removal of a forward cover of the DELCO-REMY generator).
4. Check a condition of contact rings of the generator and, if necessary, smooth out them a small emery paper (see rice. An arrangement of contact rings of a rotor on the DELCO-REMY generator).
5. Unscrew three nuts, the fixing stator winding wires to the rectifier block, and remove the stator (see rice. DELCO-REMY generator).
6. Unscrew the screw and remove the block of rectifiers.
7. Unscrew two screws and remove tension brush holder/regulator from a back cover. Note an arrangement of the isolating washers under heads of screws.
8. Check smoothness of movement of brushes in guides and measure dyne of brushes.
9. For replacement of brushes unsolder contacts of old brushes from the brush holder and on their place solder new.
10. Check smoothness of movement of brushes in guides.


Extraction of a drill for release of brushes of the DELCO-REMY generator

1. Before installation of brush holders record brushes in the wrung-out situation, using a steel wire or a drill.
2. Install brush holders so that the wire or a drill came out through an opening in a back cover of the generator. Fix the brush holder by screws.
3. Install the vypryamitelny block and a winding of the stator in a back cover and fix by nuts and the screw.
4. Establish a rotor in a back cover of the generator, then, according to earlier put tags establish a forward cover. Screw in three coupling bolts.
5. Take a wire or a drill from an opening in a back cover, at the same time brushes will fall by contact rings of a rotor (see rice. Extraction of a drill for release of brushes of the DELCO-REMY generator).
6. Install the generator.
