Default Re: Fiat Palio S10 - Now, Restoration Complete!

Hey mate, I just went through the entire thread in one sitting. Awesome effort to get your S10 back to its former glory. I've got a S10 that I am considering getting freshened up. I know its been a while but would it possible to share details of garages and parts stores that you've used to get the job done? PM is fine too.
Thanks.

Hi There,
The S10 was worked on in Bangalore at BugStop. Its a garage in Jakkur, managed and run by Pavan Kadam. All parts replaced on the car are OEM and ordered through 99rpm.com.
Hope this helps.
Kiran.

Quick update on the car:
Have done 20k kms now with the restoration complete. Car also completed 2 years post finishing. Got the clutch changed as the release bearing was on its way out. On getting the clutch out, found that the plates themselves were almost worn out. Good thing I bought the whole kit. so now the car has new clutch plate, pressure plate and release bearing. Have replaced engine oil, oil and fuel filters and gearbox oil as well.
Clutch is much lighter than before. Happy about this by-product

The alternator bearings started making a racket and were whining for the past 10k kms or so. got new bearings from SKF and replaced them, with no change in noise. Got OEM bearings and replaced but the whine continues. the noise is quite irritating. Got an alternator off a scrapped car and that one whines too. fml! The noise is much lower than my alternator though. so currently running with it till the mech is able to fix mine.

Overall, car is running just fine. no breakdowns or complaints, except the alternator.

Are you sure the whine is coming from the alternator? It could be a different source such as the water pump or the power steering pump. Alternatively, if the alternator is definitely the culprit, try to have it bench tested and dynamically balanced. It's possible that in the process of replacing the bearings, the shaft and or the bearing housing was bent slightly.

Congratulations on your beautifully restored Palio! It makes me very happy to see so much hard work and passion going into a restoration.

We know its the alternator because when we disconnect the aux belts, which go to the water pump and power steering pump, the noise still exists. This would eliminate the other pumps on the car.

I do agree and did suspect myself, that the rotor seems to be the culprit here and not the bearings itself. Do you know where in Blr we can get the rotor balanced?

I know that there are a few companies in Peenya industrial area that are specialised in rotor dynamic balancing. I will find out and let you know once I'm able to get touch with a friend who has some knowledge in quality inspections.
