This Service Bulletin is notification of a requirement to replace specific alternator assemblies identified herein as a corrective action for potentially non-conforming alternator fan backplates in the field. Continued operation of an alternator with a non-conforming alternator fan backplate can cause undue flex and stress on the backplate during engine operation.
