Hiya all,

Just bought another classic for an absolute steal :D .....This one is an '89 3.5Efi to hold hands with the '92 3.9Efi I already have.
Question is; The 3.5Efi I just bought shows the battery light on as soon as battery is connected, then goes out what it starts and runs. On a fully charged battery it runs lovely. However, even though the battery light goes out the output from the alternator is bad/ very bad (barely 2v :shock: !!)....

I've checked the wiring, looks ok and checks out. It seems obvious the alternator brushes have given up. Am I right in thinking the diode pack is also duff?

I'm gonna fix in a replacement alternator in the next couple of days. I guess I just want some confirmation/ thoughts from you guys here. :wink:

Just a hunch, but you might also check the electrical part of the ignition switch. Mine fell apart in a complex way, so that the switch wasn't doing quite what I expected.
