1. A testing assembly for testing regulators and rectifiers of alternators, comprising:

  • a) a drive alternator to be spun by an alternator tester including a dual-conductor wire in place of a regulator and a triple-conductor wire in place of a rectifier, wherein said dual-conductor wire is connected to a modified brush assembly of the drive alternator and wherein said triple-conductor wire is connected to the stator of the drive alternator;

    b) a test board including a regulator test station for receiving and testing a regulator, a rectifier test station for receiving and testing a rectifier, said dual-conductor wire for connection to a brush/test board connector, and said triple-conductor wire for connection to a stator/test board connector;

    c) said regulator test station including regulator clamping means for clamping a test regulator to be tested to said regulator test station, regulator mounting means for mounting said test regulator on said regulator test station, and regulator electrical contact means for electrical contact with said test regulator; and

    d) said rectifier test station including rectifier clamping means for clamping a test rectifier to be tested to said rectifier test station, heat sink means for contacting said test rectifier, rectifier mounting means for mounting said test rectifier on said rectifier test station, and rectifier electrical contact means for electrical contact with said test rectifier.
