My Generator stopped charging. I removed the band and all I see is minute droplets of solder thrown around inside housing. I guess this indicated failure of the armature. Am I correct? Thanks

Re: 50 Ford question

Thanks, One question? Did you use the entire 6 inch length of hose or did you cut it shorter. I cut mine to about three inches. Going to give it another try later this week. Thankks
