    HELP replacing engine block in generator

    After Gustav, I bought a new engine block for my generator (Briggs and Stratton with Generac motor). Anyway, I have removed everything to install the new block, however, I can't seem to get the alternator removed from the old block. I have pulled the alternator cover off, and I have removed everything (exhaust, air filter, carb, etc) and installed it on the new block. I am looking at the alternator "guts" and the old block. Can someone can point me in the right direction, or tell me how to do it...lol. --jeremy

    Thanks, Billy, but I am one step ahead of you...lol. I have the durn generator looking like the diagram pictured. Look at part #5 which is the alternator. Item #5 shows the alternator housing. Within the housing is a huge spool of wire that spins when the engine turns. Imagin taking that housing off and exposing the guts of the alternator. Now picture the guts of the alternator attached to part #4, somehow. Where it attaches to part #4 there is a flywheel (or something within the "guts" of the alternator. Part #4 is attached to the engine block with the bolts (part #10), but you cannot get to them unless the flywheel, and/or guts are removed. This is what I am looking for. How to remvoe the alternator guts from the part #4, so I can get to the part #10 bolts. lol. Sorry for the confussion. If I can't get some small engine know-how here, I may have to resort to taking it to a small engine shop. Sucks. --jeremy

    Look at part 5 above ^ [Gen Pack] It looks as if there are 4 bolts that holds the ends of the gen pack together. From there, it may be possible to separate the gen pack [Guts]. Becareful as I don't know if your generator is brushless. If this generator has brushes, then you need to dissasemble the brushes on the end of the fan shroud #34 before you do thos so you don't damage the fragile brushes.

    Now below, look at part 5 the bolts that hold the [Gen Pack] together.

    Ok, What I am looking at is (Image 2, number 2) connected/stuck to (Image 1, part 4), bolted to the engine block (Image 1, part 900). Everything in Image 2 slides off, leaving the the "guts" (Image 2, part 2).

    Note: the shaft from the engine block that goes into/to the end of the "guts". I think this is what I need help with. Thanks Billy.

    I'll try and remember to post pics at lunch of what I have.
