I drove the car home last night and noticed that the voltage on the new voltmeter was all over the place. At idle it was around 14 but driving it would fluctuate between 14 and 18. This can't be good.





Do I need a new regulator?

Are they easy to source and replace?

Anything else that should be done at the same time?

Pulled out the alternator. Doesn't look to bad but I think I will just replace the whole thing. What do you think?






Nice and clean in there

Allright, I have a new question:

Will your team also have falconry lessons available?

Did you perchance confirm the voltage readings with hand held DVOM ?


Hoiw does the wrap compare to paint cost wise? Looks very nice.

Actually know but I have had my suspicions ever since I saw the headlights go really bright on the freeway one night.

I think wraps are about the same as paint. Mine is a trade for some wheels so I can't really say how much it was.

Today we ordered an alternator off eBay. Then replaced the front wheel studs with longer ones:














Then found we are going to need a new tie rod end sooner or later sad smiley

Installed a remanufactured alternator.






Though a little fiddly it all went back OK, until the final step:



Why is my belt now slack, even with zero shims? :confused:

Installed a new belt courtesy of Munk's Motors. Also bought an extra 2 shims. You can see the old belt is significantly narrower then the new one.



Problem solved. Though it did need only 2 shims inside, 4 outside. Will check it next week.

Voltage is now a steady 13.8V smiling smiley

Back to the lowering saga. If you remember we were trying to lower the car back to stock US ride height of 25.5" front and 25" rear. We had set the spring plates at 35* which, with our stock torsion bars should result in this. But it didn't! Instead returning about 26.75".

So we tried again with 32* which we calculated based on how many inches of lowering we got per degree of spring plate inclination change from the previous attempt. This resulted in 24.5" ride height which is lower than we want.

What's going on? Well, it turns out the car appears to settle quite a lot if left overnight or driven. I thought bouncing it would settle it but apparently not. The 26.75" was measured after just bouncing the car. The 24.5" after letting the car sit overnight. Solution: set the spring plates to 33* and leave it overnight. Result: 25.5" of rear ride height. YAY. Then we set the fronts to 26" rather than 25.5" for a little more front clearance and took some pictures because it just looks so darn cool in the sun IMHO.

Next: mud flaps.
