Re: Do I need this still?

It's a bosch al82x alternator. I've had a look on google and these do have a regulator fitted internally. The alternator looks like its brand new! Most things are new on the bus (fitted before I bought it) The chap never managed to finish the project so it's not even been used since being built. I'm...

Re: Do I need this still?

Oh OK, I'll nip out and check. Thanks.

I have a problem with generator warning light coming on and staying in when key is out so wondered if it's down to still having regulator

Do I need this still?

My bus (67 ) is fitted with an alternator so does it still need the regulator?

Re: gearleaver plate position - jumping out of 2nd gear

It seems my plate has a bit that stick out where the centre cut out is. In the area that second would be. Think I'll get a file on it later and see if that helps. Failing that a new original plate.. Repro parts really do suck eh!! Thanks for the video link. Helped a lot. I'll read the others later T...

Anyone know the colour code for the green bus on the custom and commercial web site?

I'm very tempted with that color [emoji12]

Re: Generator light

Yes that happens after a run but not just a quick start.

Nothing else attached . I wondered if the alternator could be wired wrong as the previous owner doesn't seem to have completed, tightened or finished anything!

Is it a straight swap for a dynamo or are they wired differently?
