    Default Anyone know how to open up a Bosch 140A alternator?

    I have a spare 140A alternator that I want to coat the housing of. I just want to separate the silver parts, blast them, power coat them, and swap these parts to my current, good alternator.

    Anyone have any tips? This is the Bosch 140A as found on the M50 series engines.

    Thanks guys!

    I figure shogun might know something. I messed with it but couldn't find an easy way to do it.

    I just replaced mine when it died... someone will know
    If it cannot be fixed by the dremel or ducktape.. get out the sledge...
