Re: K1200LTE Generator Location question
The alternator is accessed by lowering the back side of the motor along with the transmission.
If you do not find any loose connections and feel you must replace/repair your alternator,
purchase a low mileage used one. They go for under $100.00.
My alternator went for 120k miles and I replaced it because I changed out the transmission. (along with the starter).
