Alright guy, just took all the copper out of my alternator, on to the starter! Already took the copper out of the solinoid. Now im working on the big center thing. Im sitting here with a screw driver, side cutter and a pliers and im cutting the copper then pulling it through the little slits.. I have a feeling that there is an easier way? Any help would be great. Also, it looks like the field coils are copper, is this correct? Thanks!
