Andrew Collins says "according
to my records, the last time I did any work on the V8 alternator was in 1988 when
I fitted a new regulator and new brushes. Although it continues to work fine,
I thought at least a little preventive maintenance would not be out of place.

alternator to them for service. They did this promptly and when I received the

when the search
results page opened I clicked on the link '7982707' in red".
