I was going to run without an alternator as the 924 is meant for hill climbs but had a change of heart in case I wanted to use it for something else .
Mark (Mink) kindly gave me an alternator to fit but I then had the realisation that the charge pipe from the turbo to intercooler was in the way and no hope of it fitting . I then read about a Suzuki Swift alternator , which is tiny and weighs 4kg less, that has been fitted so managed to locate a new one for £100 . This is only 60amps but it doesnt have to do much on this car . I changed the pulley over to a 6 rib pulley and a little grinding of the mount enabled it to fit giving room for the turbo charge pipe .
Anyone else still alive on this forum , been deadly quite recently .

I’d get lost half way up there Paul and they ruined it when they put tarmac down .
It’s just using up that engine I had left over from when I put the 968 one in the other car .

TBH I don't know much about hill climbs, but isn't it all over in under 3 or 4 minutes? Seems like your 924 should be used somewhere like Oulton or Donington.

Fantastic build Simon, I’ve really enjoyed reading about your progress.

I’m recently back to this forum and great to see some people on here.

In the words of every wannabe reality contestant " its been a journey" and I have been "out my comfort zone " for most of it .
Its enough to get a man to rip his 75" TV of the wall and stick it up Mr Cowells bottom .

Heretic, in most UK Hillclimbs they are shorter than that. But it is awesome motorsport. Watch this one!

:lol: I'm sure that single seater has a lot of downforce, grip and power. I expect Simons 924 will have a lot of power. Maybe he's planning to do hill climbs and track days.

Love this!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

An entire 75 “ television up there- that’s guaranteed to put ‘stars in your eyes’ !!

Keep up the good work, you’re giving me inspiration to get mine sorted.
