As I type I am rebuilding the alternator from the Blue car - Checking parts, counting screws and taking useful photographs (I hope). Also checking the alternator removal method.

All in pieces now so It may be tomorrow before I get the chance to reply.

OK a quick update.

Thanks Dave.

You've done this before Dave! I just went to place the order and they don't have enough Voltage Regulators, they have 5 coming presumably to replace the 5 I bought last week but the remainder will need to be shipped from their warehouse in Europe which will take a week or so.

I've identified the screws;
7 M4 x 6mm - all for electrical connections
4 M4 x 16mm - for the front bearing retainer
2 M4 x 25mm - for the Voltage regulator

Taking advantage of the slight delay and having just done 2 alternator rebuilds I'm trying to find a suitable +ve terminal boot (they disintegrate) and the radio interference suppressor which is often missing or the wire has fallen off.

I'm waiting for them to get back to me.

I have 5 kits minus the 25mm screws which weren't on the BOM I was using to identify the parts, but if I get the order in today I should be in a position start sorting out the first kits over the weekend.

I'm now in a position to start sending these assuming the padded envelopes turn up today. As Dapinky said it takes a bit more organising when there are more than a few my local shop didn't have 30 padded envelopes so I've bulk bought them which brings the price down to 20 pence each. Postage in the UK is Royal mail second class signed for small parcel @ £4.00 it is the same for 1 or 2 and probably more kits. If anyone wants to set-up an LEC delivery to distribute locally let me know. Similarly I will be at Beaulieu this weekend so can deliver there.

Summary of cost
Kit £38.00
Screws £ 1.00
UK P&P £ 4.20
Outside the UK postage - I will need your address in order to lookup prices. If you have any other parts to order from the UK I am happy to receive the delivery and combine to save postage (within reason!)

I will allow today for any special postage arrangements then send a PM with payment details to everyone on the list tomorrow. I have 8 kits here and I'm waiting for the Voltage Regulators to arrive from Denmark for the rest so I'm expecting to send the first ones on Friday and the rest early next week.

Final list below:
1. Simon P 1 x Kit + Screws
2. Tuga2112 kit without screws
3. Tuga - 2nd set without screws
4. Pinky 1 x kit (no screws required)
5. John_W 1 x Kit + Screws
6. Phil (lotusflasherman) 1 x Kit + Screws
7. saltire (Jonathan) 1 x kit plus screws please
8. RonR 1 x Kit + Screws
9. Andy_J 1 x Kit + Screws
10. LRS7 1 x Kit + Screws
11. HJ2 1 x the works please
12. Tim_haskins 1xkit + screws
13. Rambo 1 x kit + screws
14. muley (Jim) 1 x kit with screws

Darn, I was hoping to order a new engine (complete) and then you could box it all up and save me a fortune in UK to US postage...

Hi All,

As promised I have sent everyone a PM either asking for payment or to confirm address.

Hopefully you have the right email and the right amount, please let me know if there is something amiss otherwise I'll find it when I pack them and check against the spreadsheet.

If anyone has an urgent requirement please shout otherwise I'll aim to get them posted by Tuesday next week (I'm away at the weekend).

Hi All,

Thanks to those who have paid and sent me their address. If you haven't done one or both of those things it doesn't show as Paid - Please send me a PM or email if you think I have made a mistake.

If you haven't paid please do so - I will send reminders tomorrow.
If you are making payment please include your LEC name as the reference, trying to work out who is who based on an initial and a surname is a nightmare - thank you to those who included that piece of information somewhere I should have asked.

Overseas Post - I have checked the price and will PM you separately.

First kits posted as a trial run at the Post office as indicated below - I'm doing them in order of receipt of funds. I have the tracking numbers and will share these if the need arises.
