It might be useful to include diode part numbers and possible sources. Now linked in the wiki http://www.disco3.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Maintenance

Excellent write-up.
The main problem with these alternators were not only the diode packs "packing", but also that they seemed to be made of Unobtanium. Where did you manage to locate them?
Cheers from Spain and thanks for the guide

Guys I will get the part number and post it tomorrow..

Bodsy

As far as I am aware the only difference is what make of alternator is fitted to the car, you need the number from the unit, this one was a Denso unit.

The diodes where sourced locally to me, and I was told that they are not normally supplied to the public, but if there is enough intrest I could start a postal service in supplying them as they don't weigh much so postage can't be that much.

This Fleebay item looks similar ? Not sure if it is OEM though - On second thoughts it looks like the stud is shorter on the fleebay item.

Possible supplier?

I have used this company for alternator parts to repair the Marrelli unit on a Serpentine V8.

http://www.woodauto.com

Good service and posted to Essex. I think it helps if you download their catalogue and identify the parts you require yourself - not too difficult once you have all the numbers off the component.

Might be worth a try? Thumbs Up
