Recommended Posts

JEEZZE...... 'all the tools out the box' on this one. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Dead straightforward job..... Just remove more & more parts to gain access to 'the bolt 1" from innerwing....'

*I know, I know >>>> Grow Some!! ๐Ÿ™„

Alt goes out downward.... Rope pulls it up to refit ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Bad light stops Play. 15mins in morning will have us up & running ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Earth disconnected as live cable, to Alt, is nut job... Toasty ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Lean over interior to lock all doors as No Central Locking ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Winning at life as always, the only way this could have been better is if it was an old imp alt found under the floorboardsย cobbled on with chopped angle iron and imperial fasteners,ย 

Well, funny you should say that.....

I got my Imp 'upgraded' to Alt, from Genny, by hitting the scrappies (70ACR = ยฃ5*) and filling the bracket [Genny long, Alt short] with nuts & washers ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Izz Disappoint... ๐Ÿ˜•

Speaking as one who hammered a 1p into a socket, to substitute a Welch Washer - for my Imp kingpins...... I now discover the shoes in my Swift are 'universal' L/R >> never had a car like this ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

I have spunked ยฃ10 on a set of brand new shoes BUT I only needed to *swap them round ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

*previous garage service may have tried this, though ๐Ÿค”
