    For a while I've been noticing a metallic dust collecting around the dynamo and assumed it was from the graphite brushes, however today it seems to have produced a lot more and is squeaking and rattling a bit. Also, the dynamo pulley (billet 3 piece jobby) was bloody hot Is this likely to be...

    Hoping someone can please help. Have been given an engine for new project but am having troubling identifying it. Have looked in usual places for engine number and there doesn't appear to be one. There is also something weird in that the oil filter and pump are on the front under the dynamo...

    Just putting the finishing touches to my '70 after an engine swap and it would appear there is no charge getting to the battery. If i take the positive terminal off the battery, the engine dies so i know it's not just the dynamo warning light playing up. I've also tried polarising the dynamo...

I drove my bug to work and part way there I noticed that the charging warning light was on (I know I should have noticed before I set off).

    I have a 1600 engine with a dynamo on it that ive transplanted into a car with wiring thats been converted to run an engine with an alternator. We've taken all the useless extra alternator wiring off and stripped all the bodged wiring back to factory original wiring for the dynamo. Trouble is...
