Alternator and Regulator Challenges

Nissan E23 Regulator

I quite enjoy my van, however I have not really had an opportunity to take it on the open road, for a couple of reasons.

Firstly it’s winter, and camping and touring during winter is not as much fun as Spring Summer and Autumn

Secondly my van battery won’t hold a charge, which has left me stranded a couple to time, now,

I suspect it may be a simple earth leakage, which if it is, is easily fixed, however it would also be it’s a very new fault since it has previously held charge for a very long periods of time while it was in the car port waiting for roadworthy and for the few patches of rust to be removed.

I have taken the alternator and regulator to Scott Mountain for servicing,

Hopefully Scott will get it to produce the full 14.x volts required to keep the battery fit and healthy.
