    Hi Darren,
    Yes Masc will have a stand there as usual. Last year it was on the hardstanding, the year before it was overlooking the cicuit. I think we had about 52 cars last year and also got to drive (too slowly) round the track on a parade lap.
    I may well be camping (you can take your car out and back in again, so park it next to your tent). I did last year and it was great, though that may...

    Forgot to mention; if you have to buy one specify Right Hand Fit. I always wondered what it meant till I found this..........



    And Mark's right - 18ACR is 43 Amp not 45 as I originally said. Oops.

    Hi Tony.

    As it happens I've just been through the disintegrating alternator scenario on my '78 1500.

    Standard OE fit was Lucas 16ACR rated at 36 Amps. As mine was terminally b*ggered I fitted a new one, but uprated to 18ACR which is a 45 Amp unit. This is because the car has more electrial demands than originally. (Kenlowe fan &c).

    16ACR is also called LRA100 which might be on...

    Guy, the splined area is well within the plane of the driven plate so I don't think that is the problem either.

    Daniel,I think we are saying the same things using different words.

    As a temporary measure I could strap a piece of wood to the clutch pedal to act as a stop. I'll see what that does but I may have to wait till next weekend so I can do it in daylight.

    Just in case it...

    good evening chaps
    I need to know the output of the alternator on my 1976 1500.
    I cant see any markings on the top, I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any markings giving the output or the part number if I take the alternator off.
    I don't have an ammeter to physically check the output
