There can be a problem where the Ignition light stays on after fitting a different Alternator



This is due to a mix up when connecting the wiring, the terminals are marked.
B+ Main battery feed.
D+ Warning light
W Phase terminal (12 volt output)

The mistake made is connecting the warning light to the W terminal not the D+ as it
should be, this mistake causes the warning light to stay on.

You really ought to publish all these help items as a book Dave.  You always make things so easy to follow.
