Alternator replacement needed!

Featured Posts

Hi all, my 60A alternator has given up and I need a replacement/ repair job done. I've tried to take the alternator to car parts dealers recently, but no luck. The serial number on the unit has worn away, but the engine is a Beta four-cylinder keel cooled diesel engine.

 

Any ideas of where to go to get a replacement, or if it can be assessed for repair?

I think you will need to post a picture of it (or several) for you to have any chance of a satisfactory answer. Beta 4-cyl engines have been around for many years with many different types of alternator fitted.

 

As to the point about car part dealer, you would need to take it to an auto-electrical business, which is not the same beast as a car parts dealer.

ECUs Direct sell alternators, as well as ECU's  and have a fairly helpful website  with pictures too.  You may be able to match what you have on there.

I have found them good to deal with.

Where are you? Cox Automotive in Atherstone could repair it. I’m picking up a repaired alternator from them on Wednesday as it happens.

I thought my alternator was seizing up (over 4 days & getting worse). Turns out it's ran out of diesel, oops 🤨
