Ok, here goes...
This is the alternator I'm using, the big wire from the starter goes to the threaded pole, and I had a wire from the T (marker pen bit) to the +ve side of the coil, I think I now know why, schoolboy error, I think this should go to the ignition switch, not the ignition system...
I don't have ANY dash lights as yet, so the alternator exciter wire from my generic loom is not attached to anything (if this is the one to go to a charging light).
Ignition switch to exciter Paul, not sure, I haven't checked that, but everything works via switch, although it does carry on running (a bit) if the fan is still on (electric).when I switch it off. The switch has been wired as per the instructions in the kit to the fuseboard.
How would I check the voltage of the coil, whilst it's running and across the +ve and -ve terminals or another way???
It revs up fine under no load, and it's an automatic.
Kev, how would you check it???
Thanks for all the help guys, much appreciated, especially as I can't drive it anywhere for someone to check...!!!
