Opinion on 1100814 Alternator stamp
« on: June 04, 2018, 02:42:11 PM »
Been looking for an 814 alternator and found this one.

Do the stampings look good on this?

Does this look like a real deal or a good restamp?

Tough to tell. The only detraction to me is the different stamp depths, but otherwise I would use it. Creeping 814's are worse than 837's to find -

I too am no expert. But if I had to guess I would say no go. It should have MORE depth difference in stamp. If I remember correctly they ROLL the stamp on. So it is supposed to be inconsistent in depth. But always fun to learn. I wonder why there is pretty significant casting damage on the other side of the center? Danny

Is there a larger photo of the stamp?

EDIT:

Was able to blow it up enough.  Restamp.

I agree with Darrel but it is good. If right price and date I would use it.

Thanks

I figured it was a restamp.

The date code is right for mine.

What's a fair value to pay for it? Seller is asking 850 for it

If the ebay seller is in TN or Angola IN, and has plenty of other items that "have been in storage 40 years", then I would suggest best avoided.

Careful, Tim - us Tennessee boys stick together - ask Cook. I do know who you are referring to, though - lol.

I'd say it's a dang good restamp if it is one - the depth, font and spacing mirror the original that was sold earlier.

I'd have no problem using it, but would prefer some kind of documentation for that wad of pesos -

Looks just like an orginal 68 442 Alt that I have.
Notice the deformed 1 missing the tail.

    I had the same thought about the 1-4 spacing but I'm not an expert either.

Also noticed on the OP alternator picture no - (dash) after the date.

The stated originals have a - (dash).

Did they all originally have the dash?

Have another close look.

I should have put them side by side - there are some differences, but the similarities in the varying depths of the 1100814 stamping are danged close. Different fonts could be because of the date gap; I'm not trying to legitimize it, but it's pretty good at first glance. Still, a lot of money for an unknown without documentation.

The 4 at minimum is a bad character on the above alternator, the 1 stamp and the 4 stamp would have to have their margin spacing milled off to ZERO, they without doubt touch if not overlap. NO GO.
