While spending several hours troubleshooting a problem with dead batteries in a Sprinter Van, Larry Hagemeister found a problem with an “nearly” non serviceable blown 300A alternator fuse. When Larry comes across tough issues such as this, he likes to share them with other professionals in the Auto Electrical Industry. Meet a colleague of Larry’s, Dan Marinucci. He is an Automotive Technical Training Specialist and has been writing and sharing information in MOTOR Magazine’s monthly import repair column “Foreign Service” since 1989.

Overall, so far, so good. Ran into a couple glitches along the way which might be good to add to your instructions. #1: Do not use a battery isolator or any other device that blocks the alternator from having battery voltage applied the alternator. #2: If you have an automatic, you will need to reposition the transmission coolant line slightly to clear the back of the alternator. The only other thing I can suggest is putting a ground stud on the alternator case. Dodges are notorious for bad grounds and having to use the brackets is problematic.1992 Dodge W250.

We have a few vintage travel trailers, and as is true with many classics, their parts and systems wear out and can be hard to repair or replace. On several occasions, HEI has been more than helpful in keeping these beauties on the road. They recently located an uncommon 12 volt battery and later were able to modify an obsolete fuse that will now accept modern ordinary components. We highly recommend their service and expertise for new or timeless.

I had a problem with an alternator I purchased. After talking on the phone to do some long distance troubleshooting (which will be helpful) they’ve agreed to warranty the part if necessary. I appreciate that kind of customer service

My car was saying it was time for a new battery. They were quick to get me in and out AND let me know I needed a new set of tires. Now, I have a new battery and a new set of tires right in time for winter. Thanks guys!

Fast and efficient!I brought my car in to see about getting the battery changed out. They had the battery in stock and, better yet, fixed the problem right then and there. These guys know what they’re doing! Locally owned and reliable, no doubt about it! I highly recommend and will be back for sure.

I called HEI looking for a starter spring for my 1942 IH TD-14 crawler. They didn't have one but Larry had one made for me. It is stiffer than the original spring and works fine.

I have used HEI to check or rebuild all my generator's, alternator's and starters for 50 years! Trucks, cars, tractors, RV's or my snake river boat HEI checks them all! Until recently that was all I used them for. Then Larry introduced me to an oil product called IXL. I was a lube tech in industry with mechanical apprentice and have been to many continuation ed. classes on oil. I'm very aware of the so called "Miracle Products" available that fix everything. I remember thinking, "whatever" when Larry asked me to try the oil and give a review if I liked it.I have a Pacific Energy fireplace insert and the blower motor quit working. It "wouldn't turn" and of course when I tried to order a new electric motor I was told it was no longer available so I vacuumed all the lint and dust out of the windings. That's when I noticed oil ports to the bushings. I put a drop of IXL in each bushing port and slowly began by force turning the fan/motor housing for a few minutes then added another drop of oil. After 30 minutes of slow turning by hand it began to loosen and turn freely. I reinstalled the blower, started a fire and waited for the heat sensor to heat up and turn on the fan. It's been run for a week now and even running quieter.IXL is going in the next oil change on the 2003 Ford 7.3 diesel. The 7.3's have an injector issue called "Stickion". I like what IXL does for a frozen electric motor! Lets see what it will do for my ol ford!Honesty, Integrity, Sound Advice and Great Service is what you get everyday at Hagemeister's! Thank you, Larry, Helen and Luke!

Great locally owned small business really goes above and beyond for their customers. I've been using them since I could drive-in work on vehicles and they have done nothing but help me with bunch of different projects.

I know next to nothing about cars. I was recommended to HEI after getting a battery replaced and finding out the clamp on one of the battery terminals wouldn't tighten enough. HEI was able to look at my car same day, and even better were able to fix it same day at a very reasonable price. I was able to watch the repair and they explained exactly what they were doing as they did it. I highly recommend them.

very good at what they do so no problems with work i have had done

Great guys. The old man really knows his stuff. Good prices too.

Took my boat out on the lake and couldn't get it to start, pulled it out of the water and drove it to town and stopped by their shop. They didn't hesitate to stop what they had been doing to take my starter out (which was in a terrible location), test the starter and get a new one installed at a great price and even better customer service. We got back on the water that day. Top notch customer service and I wouldn't take my vehicles anywhere else.

Great place to have in Lebanon. Did a starter repair in a 97 4Runner and they had the contacts and plunger in stock. Everything fit perfectly, and were OEM Denso parts for a very reasonable price. They specialize in starters, alternators, and batteries apparently. Also had a nice selection of stranded wire up to a very large "00". The staff was nice and very helpful. Highly recommend this place for auto electrical and then some.

I have been dealing with Larry Hagemeister and his team since the early 1990's and as an equipment mechanic, I will go nowhere else. Most of us strive for quality parts, knowledge and support. This is exactly what you get here. In fact, so much so that they have taught and given seminars over years at many events. Even the most seasoned mechanic runs into a puzzling situation from time to time and the team at Hagemeister is a phone call away with a solution. This is a major thing that most box stores and parts stores are missing. The folks at Hagemeister will fix you up. :)

They recently helped me replace the motor on a 12 volt mini-forklift. My impression was that they thought it was easy, but I had been turned away from two shops in Eugene that thought it was too unusual. Now running great.

Alternator stopped working while driving my 2013 Volkswagen GLI 2.0T from Sacramento, CA to Albany, OR. My choices were take a chance with a mail order part that would cost up to $400 that may or may not fit or work, or work with someone that actually knew the technology behind the new computer controlled alternator, and could test and repair it. In about an hour Larry Hagemeister at HEI fixed my existing alternator, that was already paired with my car's computer. The cost? Less than 1/4 of the price for a mail order unit. Thank you HEI for saving my vacation!

These people are great. I have a 630 JD and needed a starter. Well, we had some problems, but Larry worked with me (0ver 50 emails, photos & you tubes) to get the problem resolved. Very polite and went way out of their way to help me get my tractor running again. I can't thank them enough. Best customer service every.

Great service! I was met with a smile and a genuine interest with my alternator issue.
20:41 06 Apr 18
It is so refreshing to get to talk to a real live person & one that knows what you are asking. Ordered two different starter posts for a couple of older Ford starters. Larry knew exactly what I wanted & shipped them out the same da postage free & the price was very reasonable. My `parts arrived two days later and fit perfectly. I will definitely keep his phone number. I must mot forget the sweet lady 9on front desk that answered the phone either as she also knew where to transfer me to the right person. Thanks again H E IBob Diegan

I went in to their shop today for a starter and alternator for my 99 dodge Cummins and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. They showed me the one wire alternator for the dodge that they carry and I tell you right now it's worth every penny you'll spend it completely fixes all the charging problems these trucks are know for having. I highly recommend these guys for all of your auto and equipment electrical needs.
