View Full Version : Electrical: 1963 Hawk Alternator needs rebuild

The original Prestolite Alternator on my 63 GT Hawk needs a rebuild. It has a lot of bearing noise and barely charging. Can someone recommend a shop where I can send it to get rebuilt.

I take my starters, generators and alternators to a place called Galaxy in Baldwin Park, CA. 1-626-945-0095. Ask for Robert. They have an 800 number too. 1-800-735-4593. They ship.

Check with someone in your local SDC club I would think you have someone local that can handle that job. Also check some of your local rebuilders they are not that hard to do.

I took my Prestolite alternator to my local mom & pop auto parts store. They sent it out to Wilson and had it rebuilt. Came back in about two weeks, looks great and charges like new.
I installed the missing Prestolite tag and looks even better.

I've used Stans Auto Electric in Indianapolis. Bob has done me well there.
