    MK1 RS2000 electrical issue

    An alternator output will not change very much upon rising revs if there is no demand, that is the job of the regulator, if the demand is say 7 amps and that can be supplied by the alternator at 1000 RPM, increasing the revs to 2000 RPM the demand would still be 7 amps, so the alternator would not need to supply more, 13.8Volts is not what I would call "Charging Voltage", 14+ Volts would deliver a better charge rate, as long as it does not exceed 14.6 Volts, 13.8 Volts is what I would expect an alternator to give out at tick over on a light load, switch on the headlamps and/or rear window and then increase the revs to 1000 RPM + and the voltage should be closer to 14 Volts indicating that current is being produced.

    South African paint code ZZ

    Looks pretty close to Venetian red on my 1976 Mexico MK2. If the car is being painted all over, then that's what I would go with, makes future paint rectification that much simpler. Nice car.

    Hi, I am going to both Hertfordshire and Cornwall in the next 3 weeks, if "OLDWHEELS" wants to sort out with "MATT 74" I can collect and pay for the gearbox and "OLDWHEELS" can pay me and everyone is happy, not 100% sure on the dates, but I am collecting an engine from Hertfordshire and will be dropping off some parts I have sold to a guy who runs a body shop in Cornwall. So I could pick up a gearbox and drop it off, call it a pint and I am happy. Let me know what you want to do. Cheers Al.

    V6 Essex Bottom pulley

    Hi, Yes you can remove the bottom pulley (the bolt will be bloody tight), the timing gear on the crankshaft & camshaft are behind the timing case, so taking off the pulley will not alter the timing at all. Just be nice and gentle when re-fitting the pulley that you don't damage the lips of the crank pulley seal when your re-fitting the pulley. Good luck when un-doing that bottom bolt, you will need a good breaker bar. Regards. Al.
