Tearing Into the Lucas 17ACR Alternator

Here are a couple shots of the damaged rectifier, a.k.a. diode pack, out of the alternator.  For those of you just joining us, I hooked the battery up wrong and let the smoke out of this poor thing.

 In the above photo, you can see a damaged chunk of steel in the bottom center of the part.

And in the second photo, you can see that some of the diodes have melted off of their leads - the diodes are the black cylinders, and their leads are the silver wires passing through the plates.
