    Have seen a place in Ballarat which I think does similar.
    The art of armature winders are diminishing exponentially I'm afraid.

    Rowan Bebbington in Chiltern Vic is a winding genius. This guy saved my arse for free one Sunday a few years ago when my roadbike blew a regulator/rectifier 350km from home. Sheer luck that our paths crossed that day but he went out of his way to patch me up to get me home. Wouldn't take money, on a Sunday, because he's a champion bloke. www.codrewinds.com.au

    Small coil rewinds in north geelong could probably help too. Think he's pretty good but customer service lacked when I needed him quite a while ago. Trades on his skill I think.

    I was hoping for the 80amp job but they had none in stock. Fitted it today and all is well again.
    Il see if I can find someone in melb to rebuild the old one so iv got a spare.
    Cheers for the help fellas

    Awesome find DPT Mate!
    Completely nuffy forgot about ‘Baxters’
    They are our yard mechanics go to for truck alternators, honestly never knew they also stocked our smaller needed sizes
    A 130amp Hitachi “type” will surely suffice, price paid (13/01/2021) pretty please Mate

    So it was about $490 with a three year warranty, which I thought was a pretty reasonable price! The smaller 100amp are about $400odd.
    The reviews I’d read where pretty good so kinda worked out well! The fellas in there were pretty helpful and friendly too.
