    alternator wiring question

    That little cleat is the connection for a radio suppressor & is connected to the positive rectifier plate. This photo might help identifying stuff.

    alternator wiring question

    Just checking... This cable should go to the warning lamp & the other terminal of the warning lamp to ignition.

    Elsan facilities at Peels wharf closed

    We were moored opposite Peels Wharf for a few days this week and there must have been 10 to 15 boats a day trying to use the facilities there and being sent away by the staff there (Manstal Limited) who were telling them to go to Fazeley Mill Marina but not telling them there was a water point near the junction. Some official signage really is needed. I was under the impression that the water point was going to remain but when I queried this with C&RT I received this reply.

    Samuel Barlows Iona

    Coincidentally, I've just read Lock, Stock and Barrel (found in a canalside bookswap) and she does mention briefly owning an Iona but I've no idea if it's the one in question.

    Best Alternator for Lombardini Engine

    You will find an illustration at https://www.amazon.it/ASL-908-Alternatore-trifase-63320111-63321136-63321190-11572700-lra01579-lra1579/dp/B06XFNQ8FP of what I believe is an Letrika (Iskra) alternator which is very similar except it does not have a W terminal. The Italian text is not too helpful! An older model with a W terminal is illustrated here https://hc-cargo.co.uk/catalog/p/113533--alternator It has a larger rectifier cover The large stud is the B+ terminal. The green wire comes from the diode trio (part of the rectifier assembly) Which in turn connects to the regulator via the block marked D+ which is also the warning light connection Hope this clarifies to some degree.

    A planning application was submitted and then withdrawn on North Warwickshire Planning website <Planning Application Search> PAP/2017/0349 on http://planning.northwarks.gov.uk/portal/ might prove educational.

    Mucky Duck Fradley BEER anyone?

    I expect we could make it to Fradley, if we don't see you before. Make sure you're through Atherstone & Glascote Locks before 6th Nov Tim, but I expect you know about the stoppages https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/notice/10551/top-lock-12-glascote-coventry-canal
