Hi Tony, just out round the block - the voltasge is all worng again so have just ordered and recieved a new alternator today (for an 1999 shogun) they are 99% match in size and have been used by other members in the jensen club to get some reliability into the electrics - we can tehn start to track down any other oissues and get her back on the road. Intil then can not tell if the un event running is electrical or fuel/cab issues. Couldn't make meet this month as my church Deacons meeting got moved.

Hi Derek, that's good news about the alternator, fingers crossed once its fitted you'll quickly identify any other issues and be able to enjoy the summer with her.
See you at the next meet.

Tony
