            • Had to postpone sorting the 2.5 AJT alternator / regulator out this morning (mate couldn't free up the ramp due to another job and the poor quality of factor components delaying completion!) so postponed until Saturday afternoon.

                  It stated only ONE available when I bought one (I paid only £61.xx) but 10 mins later another one popped up at £66.
                  Had it in my basket since Monday at £88 and price fell over four days to £61 when I looked this again AM.
                  I've seen used 90A sell / advertise @ £50 - £70!

                    The above is the standard tyre and wheel on the van and I'm looking for the
                    Fender clearance in mm
                    Wheelwells clearance in mm

                    You can see these marked on the wheel diagram. With the correct measurements I can play around with new sizes compared the OEM.
                    Can anyone assist?
                    Tommo , Si or others running standard rims.

                    Ta in advance.

                      I can start having a think about making it electrically or hydraulically adjustable.

                      • Still thinking about the suspension but intrigued by the forces placed on the torsion bar support and ball nut.
                        So the starting point has got to be whats fitted to my red delivery van (ex-Coca Cola), how is that interpreted and what if anything can be done.
                        What actually have I got fitted to the van, so, found the fuse box cover and found a website that decodes the factory 3 digit codes;

                          • Fitted a new 120A alternator today,
                            Bought a HELLA 8EL 012 427-541 Alternator, 14V/120A.

                            Going to now refurb the old unit and add it to the spares "pile".
                            For those interested you can upgrade from the 90A without upgrading the looms (the looms are identical on ETKA) but a different loom is required for the 150A option.
                            I assume its just the main cabling to the battery - any one done it?

                              • I found the 90A HELLA for £61 & the 120A for £123 delivered outright purchase Si... best I found locally was £133+VAT exchange, surcharge was £60 & I'd never heard of the brand. Just found a new reg online for £4.79 delivered so a cheap rebuild too!!
