can anyone help me out here, i have changed from an dynamo to an altinator and now need to know which wires to link on the regulator ??
What alternator is it ? If its the Lucas acr range this had two terminals on it. 1 large and 1 small. The small thin cable goes from here and connects to the thin wire on the old regulator box marked I or IND . The box can be removed and the cables joined. The larger alt terminal (normally brown cable) then joins to the larger (brown) cables at the box (maybe 2 or more there, dont know that model) where all join together. Insulate well. This means you now have 2 seperate connections where the old box used to be. Done.
Ok...........its a Lucas Alt and presumably the large and small female connectors go to the large and small on the Alt.
As the regulator is being removed,what wires are linked/connected ?
Thanks...Thats how we like it explained.At the regulator,
Terminal E cable is an earth and can be discarded.
Terminal D has two yellow/red cables. These may already be crimped into the same connector or two seperate but remove these from the regulator but keep joined together. No other cables are connected to this point.
Terminal F, red/white cable, Terminal A, yellow cable & Terminal ( cant quite make it out, does it say W ?, end terminal ) which has two yellow/red cables are all joined together. This joint will have 4 cables The regulator can now be removed leaving you 2 joints. These should be insulated and job done. Some people leave the regulator in place as a junction box just for jointing the cables. An easy way to join the cables could be round hole crimps on each cable, nut and bolted together, or you could solder.
