Yo,

got my alternator now and I've been having a look at ..... .... there's one too many connections. There's 3 together like on a regular mini alternator then there's now up the back. a little spade connector.

Any ideas what it is or if i need it?

Cheers.

edit

Never mind. Found out what it is.

wouldnt have thought an earth!! it shud do that thru the body of the alternator!!

could be a connection for a noise surpressor so u dont get a whining sound on your radio or cd player as the revs go up and down!! i wouldnt just earth it tho!! be warned it mite be live! check for voltage with the engine off and runnign before you try outting anything on it!!!!!

if it all works ok and u get no interferance without it!! mite just not be necesary!! 1 of those extras some use and others dont!!

another thought! could be rev counter take off for later model or diesel cars!! i swear some run off the alternator!!

Sounds like a connection for the supressor to me. Most alternators, including Mini ones, have them as standard.

Are you sure, there is usually a supressor mounted to the alternator, which is held in place by a small nut. There is a thin black wire that goes into the body of the alternator. If you pull this wire off, it leaves a big spade connector.

I'll have a look tommow but I do not think there is, I don't have a stereo so I would not notice feedback.

On your old alternator there will be a black bit with a spade connector on it, if you take that off then it should fit on your new one, i think it tells the alternator to turn on to trickle charge one your engine hits around 3k

What make / model alt is it? OR what year / model of bluebird was it for?

I dunno if this pic helps, but I found it with a quick search.

If you post a pic of the terminals and the part number of the alt, I'll see what I can find. :)

Chances are, the spade connect or is just for the supressor, OR it could be for the charge warning indictor, either way, it's not really needed. Most altenators are designed for more than one type of vehicle, so they often have more connectors than are required for operation.

Well it took a bit of doing, but I found out the mini wiring loom plug is a direct fitment for the alt, and the seperate spade connector is just for the suppressor to fit to, I left this off my altenator and have had no problems with electrical noise.

So it should just hook straight in an work, though I susspect things did not go too well due to your post edit......?

if you have problems, let me know, i'll see if I can help.

one rather large niggling problem.

I thought my alternator pulley would fit.....so i bought an alternator with no pulley.

...my pulley does not fit....and I sorta destroyed my alternator getting the pulley off.....so yeah. El Gordo is dead for now.
