|Astra alternator problems - quietman|
I had a recon. alternator fitted to my 1.7D Astra (Isuzu engine) at the week end. The relay in the footwell was changed and the wiring checked. However there seems to be a fluctuation in the output. I noticed yesterday that the rev counter was fine at 70 mph (approx 2700 revs) but at 40mph the pointer was not steady. When I first started this morning the charge light was flickering on at idle speed and when coming to work the dash lights were not steady until approx 60 mph. When I pulled into the car park at work I was able to see the lights in one of the windows and there was clearly an alternate dimming and brightening of the head lights.
I was always given the impression that the alternator should produce a constant output capable of covering all of the general electrics even at idle speed and this, to my laymans eyes, would indicate that there is an output problem. Before I check with the supplier have any of you guys experienced this problem?
Any advice would be appreciated

150bhp GTE still a surprisingly good drive and digital speedo an object lesson of how to give a clear speed reading. Others pocket money prices.
