Did think about wrapping it in old metal can to offer it some protection

Omega General Help / Cat Cover
« on: 20 May 2021, 22:32:44 »
Driving along today and heard a slight ping/clang and saw a piece of metal in the rear view mirror turns out to be the guard or reinforcing for cat so solutions before anymore damage can be caused to cat.Could I wrap it in something for example? Any likely MOT issues later?

i did a small test as battery was 12.7v and with car running went up to 14.4v should I do a full test? or should that be enough and perhaps keep an eye on battery volts as still not using the car much

Fully appreciate the test but when I started the car and the volts went down then perhaps in my stupidity I thought the alternator isn't doing anything that why I tested on the alternator terminals just in case faulty cable earth etc.When I put the old alternator back on my other car the battery light came on and has stayed on so I'm pretty confident the alternator has had it.So replacement time as I need to get back to reliable motoring and just a bit unlucky that the other alternator has failed I guess but same age and sat around for a long time probably hasn't helped

One of the ones on Ebay was a Bosch remanufactured with seal at 99 but no warranty which has put me off that one.I'll have to chat with the repair centre and see what I get for the money at least it's in my town and has a 12 month warranty

I went to try that this morning and started with 12.77v at battery which then after starting car went down 12.4v and the I got under car and after much struggling got a similar measurement at the alternator end large cable and nothing at the smaller cable at which point I stopped

Just a quick glance all seem to be in the 30-35 region

Just got some fresh batteries and my tester at least has recovered and giving a reading of 12.77 volts at battery terminals but the alternator has had it so repair or replace seems my next option

I just contacted my local alternator repair centre and they want 96 who knows what they will repair it with.I've seen a few on ebay some seem to be compatible some not it's a bit of a mine field.Would a diesel fit a petrol for example if 120 amps.or a Signum fit an Omega etc etc

Well I've got the hang of getting it off so that isn't a problem but repair as I just checked the regulator cost and at 45 doesn't seem very cost effective if a recon one at 73
