[Saloon-lovers] Dynalite. -wiring and wires!

Hi guys.
(1967 S-type 3.8 MOD UK spec)
After the bloomin’ dynamo and control box packed up at the
Le-Mans track and left me pushing I have decided enough is
enough.
I got myself a Dynalite, (looks like a dynamo but is an
alternator inside).
http://www.powerlite-units.com/dynalite.htm
and
http://www.powerlite-
units.com/pdf/Dynalite%20Negative%20Earth%20Fitting%20Instru
ctions.pdf
Just a quick question, I want to replace the cable from the
charge terminal (the 10mm one) to the battery. It vanishes
in to the loom. Does it go to the starter solonod button
ring + (which then goes to the battery)?
If not where does it go?–

Lusstor,

I’m assuming you have a Negative earth. The Brown/Yellow wire at
the dynamo only goes to the ‘D’ terminal on the RB340 regulator.
The Brown on the solenoid goes to one side of the ammeter. The
other side of the ammeter is Brown/White it goes to the ‘B’
terminal on the RB340. If you want to continue using the ammeter
with the alternator follow as explained in the negative earth
installation instructions. Solder join the thick Brown/Yellow and
thick Brown/White (Re-using the Lucar connector) together and refit
it to the ‘B’ terminal. Join the thin Brown/Green (‘F’ terminal
wire) to the thin Brown/White (‘WL’ terminal) and insulate well. In
the instructions shown they are using the existing RB340 as a
junction box and to give the illusion of originallity.

Hi Art

1000 thanks. I have printed your post and the diagram and will keep
re-reading them when I do it. (lots of times!)

Thing is I am running a new 45 amp cable to the battery, it’s that
I am unsure where to add in. As I don�t trust the current current
(pun intended) cable!

My best guess is from the 1 cm connector on the dynalite to the
starter ring (battery side. But then I am not sure if that will
stop the ammeter working� Oh hold on, so I run it, from the
dynalite to the control box, then control box to starter ring
battery side, ah but which do I remove.

Sorry I am totally confused.

I fully understand about warning light and field being joined.
(tick)
But which cable to replace with the thicker stuff, or does ohms law
mean that if I just add it in as well like water it will split
allong whats available…–

Lusstor,

I reckon the existing cabling will be adequate. It’s good for 40
amps and you get to keep the ammeter operational. Running a cable
to the solenoid only will bypass the ammeter which will show
discharge only.

If you REALLY want to rewire, you would have to run one wire from
the alternator to the Brown/White side of the ammeter and stop
there and optionally another from the Brown side of the ammeter to
the solenoid. Leave the existing wires in place. At the RB340 leave
the two Brown/Whites on the 'B’terminals. You can fold the
Brown/Yellow (from the dynamo) and tape it. Do the same at the
dynamo end.
