Default Dynamo to Alternator conversion (B20 LHD)

Good Afternoon All,

Thought I’d share the successful Dynamo to Alternator conversion I’ve recently completed.
(with some very-handy guidance from the brilliant Noddy at Deaconcraft)

Noddy & Junior at Deaconcraft really are brilliant.

Top blokes, highly skilled, tremendously knowledgeable and helpful.

Absolutely my regular garage, great workmanship and guidance

Give them a call and your wheels would be in the of best hands - for sure.

See attached images of the job, including the rewiring, end result.

In addition to the rewiring, a new & shorter belt than that which was in-play with the dynamo was also needed.

Approx. one month since the above / attached installation with lots of driving done since and all is good under the Amazon hood !!

Alternator purchased via Brookhouse.

Cheers !

Will the 12 volt dynamo from B18 fit onto B16?
