The phaeton's had a run tonight, Alternator works well, in fact better than the old one, must be bigger amps.
So a wash and polish tomorrow, and we're ready. The Northern Duttoneer's "On Tour" polo shirt is ironed, the route is planned, and the weather looks promising.

Ok I know the titles wrong now, it's 2 day's to the off, we have just finalised the route, excellent job done by Martin, would put THE AA and Google maps to shame.
Not only that but a fine Chilli as well, Thanks Karen and Martin.

You can't believe it, I thought I'll just give the Phaeton the once over before to Coast to Coast, and noticed that the black cover on the alternator was shaking about. Also there was acid on the top of the battery, Strange!!!
Then found the small wire from the alternator loose, the connector had come off, explains why the ignition light didn't come on.
New tab on and connected back on the alternator, the acid on top of the battery was also explained when I started her up. The alternator rectifier must have packed in, as the volt meter showed the battery getting over 16 volts. Not good!
So found the spare alternator off our James' Sierra, and replaced it on mine. Problem solved.
I love Duttoneering...
