    Replacing Starter Motor

    cheers
  2. Hello, The starter motor on our Lombardini LDW1404 has packed in so need to get a replacement. Have found a few suppliers on line, just wondering if there's anything I need to be careful about / look for when re-wiring? Also does anyone know if any special mounts / fittings are required as the aftermarket ones don't seem to come with anything? Thanks in advance. Malcolm
  3. Hello, We get a lot of water in our bilge and along with replacing the decking, I'd like to get a cover to help protect from rain. Would like to try and make something suitable myself. Any recommendations for best solutions / materiel etc to use? Thanks
  4. Hi guys, We have a ticking noise coming from our electrical area containing fuse panel, trickle charger and ignition panel. Any ideas what this could be? Doesn't always tick, tends to over night. About a tick every 30seconds or so....

    Best Alternator for Lombardini Engine

    Hi guys, first of all I"d like to thank you all for the advice. So I took the hit and bought a new alternator as I had clearly damaged the other. I've clarified with the supplier all the connection which we have right. The green wire is in fact a rectifier so have left that alone. I test the wires and found the one that turns of the light when touching metal so know which wire is which. I have now wired up the new alternator and it still doesn't work. Is the last possibly that there is a fuse on the b+ wire? The last alternator was 70amps and this is 80amp.

    So I've just spoken with the supplier. The B+ is for the main battery lead which I have connected. The D+ is for the warning light which I have connected (will double check it is right. The W is for the rev counter (which think is broke. They weren't sure about the green, said to leave. So I understand it should work as long as main battery and warning light are wired correct. My question now is, are there likely to be any external fuses that I might have blown and should check?

    Thanks guys I'm going to have another try this evening. Another thing I'm wondering is whether I could have blown a fuse? When removing the old alternator the main battery and warning light wires touched by mistake creating a big spark. (I have now learnt to cut all current off before playing with electrics..) Is there a fuse external to the alternator that might have blown?

    Ok thanks will try this tomorrow. I'm worried I might have broken it now with all this miss wiring. Also I over tightened the nut at W and think it's broken beneath. Will this affect the alternator working?

    So that didn't work. The green wire in the middle cones out with a connection. Could that be the added tacho connection? I took it off and we're right where d+ is. Sorry b+. It is on the other side where I had the thin red bull now have the one thick red attached

    yep althought thats how I have it wired and it isn't working. Just taken a look at the old photo, (different in correct alternator which broke) and it appears the thin red wire was actually linked to the D+ so am wondering if try swapping and putting the yellow on W?

    Thanks Tony. So I think the thin red wire should go to the W which is how I have it wired now. The only place for a thick wire is whre the thin wire currently is but there are not markings on it
