Re: Bench Testing an Alternator.

Okay and thanks. The isolator block is missing from this one. Will that cause issues such as you mention?

Re: Bench Testing an Alternator.

Hi OBG, Thanks for response and photo. The two alternators are absolutely identical. And l applied the exact technique for testing both. On both ocassions l earthed the body next to the vice. Perhaps there is a continuity issue? Will set it up and give it another go over the weekend. Regards Stuart

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

They look ok in the picture but they are all pittied. So rather than take any chances im swapping the lot. The other side is the same. Got three off the other side before I gave up for the day. The others are being a real git, so I think I need some more heat. I thought about getting some of that s...

Re: Water leak

Also l changed from clamping clips to solid stainless steel jubilee clips. Getting the original clips in place is a killer. No room to use large plumbers grips. Likely easier if you have the proper clamping grip tool.

Re: Water leak

Well l managed to change the small connecting rubber pipe item 24 by removing item 25. Dont recall touching pulley or filler. But it was an absolute bast*rd on my lower back. I used a 1/4 inch drive socket to get access to bolts on filler tube For peace of mind, change that pipe too. I mean access ...

Re: Bench Testing an Alternator.

Tested yesterday. No photos unfortunately as l was holding on to too many things at same time. Following the useful diagram from tobydog l replicated this (no bulb though) in my man cave. I clamped the alt in a small vice. Positive and earth as per diagram. The 90 amp labelled alternator shows 12.2 ...

Re: Lumpy running and yep the old favourite a misfire...

Just to clarify in maxstu's response he refers to Question one - idle control unit as being behind the RHS rear light, whereas I think you meant the one near the coil with two plugs that can be joined together. You don't have either. The first is indeed injection only, and the second is fitted to a...

Re: Temp 2 sensor mods

Is there an engine or cooling problem you are hoping to resolve?
Don't recall seeing either article. But that doesn't mean they do not exist if course. Aidan is certainly your man for solving gearbox issues though. And a smattering of general T25 knowledge too.
