Hopefully someone can assist with this alternator question. I have a 1985 Jaguar Vanden Plas V12. I had to replace my alternator as it was no longer charging. I received a rebuilt one , and when switching over the pulley and fan I went to have lunch and when I came back I think I may have mixed up some parts. Stupid me, I also forgot to take a picture. What I’m
Confused about is specifically the order in which the parts go back onto the alternator shaft. I have two spacers (washers) ,each with a woodruff key notch, a fan, the pulley, a lock washer and a nut. The shaft has a woodruff key in it. I suspected only one washer/spacer went back onto the alternator and the other one came with the rebuilt unit, but couldnt remember or be sure. Anyhow, I put it back the shaft in this order (closet to alternator to end of shaft)
- Only one spacer
- Lock washer
When I installed the rebuilt one back on my car, I heard a sound from the alternator that suggests it’s bearings are bad. However, before I return it I want to make sure the order of parts on the alternator shaft are correct.
Hopefully someone can help or has an old alternator lagging around
