1979 Mini Clubman 1098
Trying to get my newly rebuilt engine running. Have not managed to get it to fire up so far, but I noticed that the red ignition light comes on as soon as the battery is connected - even when the ignition is turned off and the keys are out. It stays on in key position 1 and 2, but when the engine is cranking it goes out. With the alternator disconnected, the light is out.
Bad alternator? Any help very much appreciated!
