Those foam seals come to a grand total of about $40 from partsouq (21496VB001, 21497VB001 and 2 x 21498VD20A) so will add them to my next order I think.
Exactly. Without a baffle the gas will flow directly from intake to exit.I believe they work better if you fit a baffle between entry & exit that extends about halfway down inside. This forces the oil mist to take a longer route rather than just in & out in the lid space.
The stainless scourers from Coles works well inside.
10 months later, and my new alternator has developed quite an oil leak :ranting:The alternator has been overcharging, so I bought a new vac pump oil seal and o ring then pulled the alternator to check it out.
The shaft had some light grooves worn and an undersized oil seal had been fitted previously so I decided to replace the alternator rather than tempting fate with trying to get the pump to seal again.
Was it from trump autos or auto8?10 months later, and my new alternator has developed quite an oil leak :ranting:
I'd previously had good experiences buying chinese alternators, but I had my doubts about this one from the start when it was sent with the vac pump fouling on a stud
It was advertised with a 5 year warranty which I'll be taking them up on, but I expect that will be a long and frustrating process so will need to either resurrect my spare alt (the one I didn't think worth re-sealing due to shaft wear) or buy a decent one and keep the replacement one as a spare. I wonder where I put those seals I bought last october?
Either way, I can't do anything about it until my shoulder heals...
