MG MGA - alternator repairs
|anyone know who in South London would check/repair alternators?|
|H L Davy|
|Any decent auto electrician should be able to check out an alternator for you fairly easily H L.|
I would expect they will also put you onto a repairer if necessary.
You can buy a new Lucas alternators at really low prices though if you check out the classic car mags.
Best of luck
|The regulator/diode packs for alternators are available as a seperate unit. I have seen the testing procedure described in workshop manuals, but you would need a later type mgb manual or similar.|
|At present I have a dynamo on the MGA and I can't be bothered to fit an alternator to test it on the car in this weather, though I will change them in the spring! Come to think of it I guess I could swap them onto my Minor, which is using an alternator!|

|I feel it realy is not worth mucking about you can buy one outright for £39.99.|
