Default Source for re-manufactured Delco Remy 50DN alternator source

Kirk's Automotive in Detroit, MI is a source for re-manufactured Delco Remy 50DN alternators. Kirk's major source of business appears to be rebuilding 50DN alternators. They appear to have at least 4 full time people employed just re-building the alternators. They have a full testing bench for these alternators. On the day I was there they had rebuilt 10-50DN's by noon when I went through their shop.

They don't always have 12 volt models in stock. When I ordered the rebuild it took them 9 days to get a 12 volt stator in from California. They advised me that the stator they got in had a problem so they had to rewind it. I finally picked it up 13 days after I ordered it. The cost was $720, exchange, plus tax or shipping. All of the hardware was new on the rebuild. The only signs it was a re-build were a few dings on the painted casting.

I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a 12 volt unit in stock. I was in no hurry however. I have driven over 2000 over the years without an alternator. It is no problem at all if you plug in at night. Kirks' contact information:
