    Hi all, Are there any sparky's out there who can help? I've replaced my alternator on my 1973 Bug 1500, and the old one had 3 prongs on the top and a wire with a 3 piece attachment. Have now fitted a Bosch 55amps alternator with internal regulator (043-903-023/co) but unlike the old one...

    Last night, when due to go on holiday today, my '79 Camper lay completely dead :confused:. I was informed by the RAC that the Dynamo isn't charging the battery. He suggested the best thing to do would be to fit an alternator as doing so would cost around the same as a repair job. He also...
