Question about 1990 Ford Bronco
Yes,alwaways replace fire damaged componants. Now, I really don't think the fire was caused by the regulator. When an alternater works at maximum output for an extended period, it overheats and overheats enough to melts soldered connections. Better known as slinging solder. When this happens loose connections go where they shouldn't and a short is created which in turn heats and melts the winding lamination which is what actuall catches fire.Once you replace the Alt. the impportant thing is to find out why yhe old one got so hot. Make sure the charging rate is between 13.6 and 14.2v. Anything less than 23 volts will cause an heating up. This is because the Alt is very, very near full output. Make sure all grounds are good and the battery fluid is at rec, level. Good Luck, Ned
