Hello Mike
I would like to express my thanks to you for the courteous service you recently provided to me when I was working towards repairing the charging system on my 1971 Jaguar Series III E-type. The re manufactured Butec alternator was shipped fast, as described and works great. In addition when you said the credit for my core would be immediate you were not kidding. Very impressive! It was a pleasure to deal with you keeping in mind that you offer both your own personnel service by phone & via e-mail as well as provide a fantastic product. Very Best regards, Phil


Mike – Just wanted to thank you for the generator. Seems like very nice workmanship, super finish, and it is generating nicely. I have sent the old one back today via U.S. Postal express mail. Please let me know when you receive it.

The generator and starter work perfectly.  Just returned from 3000 mile tour from Florida to the NW Arkansas Ozarks and back.





After getting two supposedly “rebuilt” alternators from other vendors which were defective, I was very satisfied with the quality workmanship on the alternator from Star Auto Electric. Keep up the good work.


Hi Mike,

Got the starter installed last week; I can’t believe how much better it works. First time I cranked it, it caught me off guard with how fast it cranked and started the engine; I over-revved the engine for a couple seconds until I could pull the choke off. All these years I just thought Lucas starters were wimpy. Thanks again. I’ll be sending the starter, and maybe the generator, for my Healey 100 when time and finances permit.

BTW, I believe you said I don’t need to oil the bushes/bearings for the generator or the starter–is that correct?

 Will get it installed this weekend and fire her up.  Hopefully it works as great as it looks!

Please keep up the great work.

What a pleasure to do business with such a great company. Generator arrived just as promised and after installation I flashed the unit as per your instructions and all works perferctly. My core refund was prompt and the entire transactions was great. I highly recommend Star Auto Electric.

I just wanted to write in and tell how impressed I am with your workmanship and service. I could not be more happy with the rebuild of the generator for my father’s Austin Healey. It looked great. I installed it, started it, and checked the output. It puts out 14.5 volts, that is as close to perfect charging voltage as I have seen, and I installed car audio professionally for over five years. thanks again for the excellent service and product, unfortunately, I doubt I will need your services again as I don’t see a reason for this rebuit to go bad. Keep up the excellent work.
