  • Great kit

    Installation of the alternator is the exact opposite of the removal which is fairly straight forward, although requiring some jiggery-pokery to get the old generator/alternator out of the fan housing with the fan still attached; you will need to loosen the two bolts on either side of the fan housing as well as the rod connecting the fan housing flaps to the thermostat bellows in order to lift it enough for the fan and associated tin-ware to clear the manifold.

    Wiring is straight forward, you can retain the standard three wires of the old generator/alterator (1) postive-charging wire (2) dashboard 'idiot' light (3) earthing wire. If you were using a regulator under the rear seat this can also be removed. I used the following webpages to figure out the wiring and it is very easy so don't be put off by the fact there are no instruction in the box.

    I took about 6 hours to fully install the kit from start to finish, not working particular speedily so I would think that most others could do it in about the same amount of time.
