Anyone to play 'spot the alternator'?


Recommended Posts

should be able too, my mate used to have to do his regulary when the brushes stuck. whenever his brushes stuck his voltmeter dropped but the charge light never came on, which is why he'd fitted the voltmeter.

from memory the three retaining bolts are 5.5mm heads.

When the brushes stick you get (a predictable) 0V. I always unstick mine by removing the brush pack and bathing the brushes in water and then excercising them in and out to clear the mud while flushing them in the water. I get precisely the same symptoms as described by Andy - only the volt meter gives it away. John's problem is with the internals of the regulator.
