Hi guys. I have a 3.2 GT and the alternator failed last week. I sourced a genuine refurb from Autolusso bournmouth which got fitted. I drove about 30 mile when that failed too. We tested it to prove it was the alternator, it's not putting out any voltage when reading voltage direct (reading battery voltage only)
I have a friend who has a know to be working unit from a 3.0 166 which he has given to me for a couple of quid.
Will that work on my GT? They look identical, have the same mounting points and connection terminals.
I am going through the process of getting another from Autolusso but I need the car back ASAP and I'm unsure how long it will be before they send another.
They want the unit they sent back so they can investigate why it's failed but without another the cas is going to be stuck on the ramp and costing money.
