Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The regulator has to be connected to the battery +ve for it to see what the voltage at the battery is. Doing the connection via the ignition lamp shows that when the alternator is working the output from the alternator is the same as the voltage on the battery - both being the same means the light w...

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

Solenoid +ve is the same as the battery +ve. The regulator should be connected to the battery +ve via the ignition lamp - no idea where your spade connects to but suspect it is a AC output and therefore does not connect to the battery. Do you not have some instructions with the alternator - or can y...

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The small stud is marked as "single phase" so I guess that's the carb choke AC connection which leaves the "D" as the connection to the ignition lamp. No sign of a spade connection in that drawing.

Stud type alternator wiring for SE5

The large stud definitely goes directly to the battery - you will have to look up the other two on the alternator data sheet. The spade ( or the small stud ) connector could be a connection for a electric choke - if for the battery sense then it has to connect via the ignition switch. Normally the s...

latest thinking brakes pads

I will need new pads soon so what's the latest recommendations - green stuff I understand is no longer in vogue. Yellow or red ? and where to get them - without earth wire. New callipers and vented discs going on soon.

1800ti exhaust manifold needed

certainly cut out the bits I have done in green ( the usual bit that destroys the turbo ) and any other bits that are not solid and therefore likely to break off.

1800ti exhaust manifold needed

Most people when they have the manifold off cut out the piece between the ports - you are sort of lucky that the metal gone has not done for your turbo -perhaps the PO has cut the metal out.

Stainless Steel Door hinge mountings

Yep - braved the great outdoors and 1/2" it is. So I will want 1xMB and 1xCoupe hinge plates. Given that the 5's have the same sort of doors I would advise people wanting plates for those to check to see if they are offset as well. Mine is a V6 1968 Coupe.
