I have a 10DN alternator (ext reg) that was rebuilt last year and I never used it. I heard something rattling in the case and took it apart. There are two springs laying in the case. Anyone rebuild alternators ??? Trying to figure out where the two springs go. :clonk:

They're the brush springs. Likely popped out when you took it apart.

Does it look something like this?

the brushes go in a white plastic piece that is mounted at the back of the alternator. If you look from the back of the case you will see a small hole that goes through the case and lines up with the plastic piece in side. take the brushes and push them spring first in the plastic piece you get a paper clip straitening it and put it from the back of the casing and you will see two holes that go across the the two brushes , push the wire through them and that will hold the brushes from fowling out while you putting the alternator together..I hope that helps.
