The alternator on my '99 PS 205 appears to have gone out this weekend. I will be taking it to be tested this evening. If it does need to be replaced, where can I purchase a new one? This alternator was rebuilt twice by the previous owner and would prefer a new one if at all possible.

I believe it is the 51 amp version.

Thanks,
Jason

I would change rebuilders, or make sure you're not demanding more from it than it was made to deliver. Do you have extra amps, batteries and other accessories? If so, you need to move up to a higher output model and upgrade the charging lead.

Speaking of the charging lead, make sure the original one is in good condition, meaning that if the ring terminal has been replaced either by itself or a new piece of wire was added, the connection is clean, tight and waterproof. If you need to re-do the connections, go to NAPA and buy some Heat N Seal connectors. They have some that solder the connection when it gets hot, some that have glue inside that seals and some that have both.

Good info guys, thanks.

The previous rebuilds were with the previous owner. Only proof that this was done was from receipts given to me at the time of purchase. The boat has an aftermarket amp/sub, with factory headunit and upgrade Pioneer speakers. Other than this, no added electrical load.

Single battery, which I will be replacing when the new alternator goes on.

Thanks,
Jason
