Fan belt is fine. How does one check the alternator voltage?

Is the alternator repairable?

Or they might have forgotten to reconnect the alternator wire back Tejas even if battery is down, light should switch OFF when engine is running, that light is an indicator of charging ie light glows if charging is not happening.

Take a multimeter, connect it to battery. Voltage would be x volts, now crank the engine, while cranking voltage would drop couple of volts (x-1 or 2) will be the reading. Once the engine starts, voltage would raise and stabilize to 13-14 volts which is the proper charging voltage. Alternator is repairable, but see if you can source the elusive water proof alternator from Bosch.

Same can be checked on your volt meter . if your voltmeter shows same behavior, then you can trust your voltmeter. if you can't see the voltage raise to 13-14 v, then suspect on the alternator wiring. if it is perfect, then its the alternator. but when you do all these, make sure idle speed is increased with your idle up switch/knob or keep revving above the idle.

Vijay, does Bosch do any water-proof alternators?

Did a lot of googling. Apparently no one makes water proof alternators since they get hot and need ventilation for cooling.

I also gathered that it is the mud that kills the alternator and not water. Infact it is advised to immediately splash water on the alternator after mud crossing.

The only suggested thing is to relocate the alternator as high as possible.

From where did you get this part no.? Although this is also a 65A Alternator, boundary dimensions and mountings are different. Will post the correct part no. for Classic shortly.

I hope you are not referring to any medical treatment, no teeth related problems yet. Thanks, planning to visit Bombay soon.

Over heating issue has resurfaced.

Went for an Otr yesterday. Picked up gogi at 620am and headed towards the meeting point 30kms away. The temp early in the morning reached 85-90.

Parked at mc donalds (meeting point), had breakfast and the. Checked coolant level in radiator. It has perfect. Switched the car on and one could see the coolant flowing smoothly in the radiator. Average speeds: 60kmph

left from there at approx 745am and headed towards karjat (approx 40kms away). Average speed: 80kmph. Immediately needle goes to 90. Slowed down to 60 and needle goes to 85. Slowed further down to 40 and within 2 minutes needle goes below 80.

No overheating at all during the entire Otr.

Left from there at approx 1pm. Again touched speeds of 60kmph and needle went to nearly 93. Reduced speeds in Bombay traffic got it to below 80.

The thermostat in my jeep has been removed. Radiator pressure washed just before the Otr.

Just got my alternator repaired. Could this have anything to do with a loose belt? I thought there was 3-4mm more give than it should be.
