    Yep, reckon so, the original last couple of inches of the wire were quite brittle so I replaced the last 6 inches, ba's been running ok ever since[emoji16]

      IMG_0419.jpgLooks fantastic, well done, its not for me though, i prefer a clearer image, ive disconnected the instrument lighting and fitted a strip of leds in the roof of the cowling. did you have to adjust your crystal headlights much after fitting ? thanks for replying.

      nope never had to adjust them really at all straight swap over just a hell of a lot better, i use to have the plasma gauges in mine but took them out and switched over back to the black dials and put blue led bulbs in behind them. 

  4. Alternator Problem

    Its the wire that is attached by a small nut to the alt, is that the wire your talking about ?
  5. Alternator Problem

    Started the car this morning and the charging light stayed on for about 2 seconds then went off and stayed off, ran the engine for about 10 minutes and the alternator wire stayed fairly cool as opposed to yesterday when the charging light stayed on, the alternator wire got so hot i couldnt hold on to it, anyone know what this means ?
  6. Alternator Problem

    My alternator on my gen 5 gt4 has twice stopped charging, the problem occurs when the car has been left overnight, on the second occasion I took it to my garage to see if they could see an issue, The garage couldn't find a problem with the alternator, although they never dismantled it, they kept it and drove it for a week and the problem did not re occur, picked up the car from the garage and drove it home without the problem happening, the car stood for three days unused, I then got in the car and started it this morning, and the alternator light wouldn't go off ! I tried running the car for a short while but it made no difference, so I'm swopping to the spare alt and see what happens, I was wondering whether the cause was moisture getting in somewhere, anyone had something similar happen to them?
