  1. Please use this thread for general discussion and memories/pictures of the event.
  2. Thanks Neil.

  3. Thought I'd better start a thread on my Cav. First photos show it as it was when I bought it, having towed it from Colindale in North London back to MK, then how it looks now.
  4. Hi Matt, if no-one else has had it I'll take it. Is that £40 with or without post?

    What's your Paypal address? I'll send you a gift.

      Hi John. Sorry mate I sold it quite quickly.

      No problem, it was for 'stock'.

  5. Hi Greg, Just replaced the alternator on my LET today and I think there is a bolt hole you can use as the block end fixing for your fabricated tensioner bracket. It is the one that the existing XE alternator top 'y' bracket uses near the end of the head. You would need to put a 90 degree bend and a dogleg in the bracket but it should work ok.

    As to the parts, £10 each plus post say £30 all in.

    Regards John

      Just checked this bottom bracket against my XE and it looks ok, albeit with a bottom third bolt for the SE, not used but hole still there and tapped in the block on the XE. This will give you a bottom bracket to hold weight of the alternator in place with you only needing to fabricate the top, tensioner, bracket.

      Currently struggling to get on top of this, please bare with me as I try to work out what to do.  I need to look at the standard bracket....I am guessing that it won't pivot.....again need to check....sorry I put my back out a couple of weekends ago and still struggling.  All the more fun when you run your own business ;)

      Thanks for all your help, and I might need these parts, so please put them by.  I will be in touch.

      No hurry and yes, the XE supports (two bolts in the bottom bracket and two brackets at the top with 3 bolts into the engine) do not adjust as there is the  separate tensioner. This means the load is carried fairly widely, especially as the alternator is more powerful, so heavier, than the one on the Mk2. The bottom bracket on the Mk2, to compensate, has three bolts into the block.

      The Mk3 brackets may also put the alternator in a slightly different place due to the multi V belt compared to the single V on the Mk2.

      Hope that helps.

  7. I agree they are the same 130/estate. The mountings on the body are the same but there are different rubbers that go in them with a bigger hole for the bar.
