    So I bodged up some water lines and stuff and took the car for a spin tonight. It felt like it really wanted to go but I had a few dramas with hoses popping off, and the boost gauge kept giving me grief so I didn't want to step on it in case it tried to spool up to 30psi and pop the engine (unknown spring in the eBay wastegate). I was just getting it all sorted when I noticed the charge light on the dash... it seems the alternator chose this moment to shit itself. No more driving until I can source a replacement alternator.

    So, who has a spare?

    7M alternators and 1J alternators share the same guts but differnt casings norbie...if 2J and 1J are the same then a 7M one should suit your needs

    Have you taken your existing alternator apart to see what went?

    You might just need a set of brushes / regulator...

    btw my 2jz has a different plug to my 1jz, not a big deal, just something to mention...

    Cheers

    The alt is probably just brushes. It's a worthwhile exercise to pull them out and extend the conductor (free - by heating up the solder and pulling the conductor out slightly) or replace them.

    Sourced a temporary replacement alternator, car is running again. It turns out the wastegate is set at about 17psi and DAMN is it FAST! Sounds pretty angry with the screamer pipe too.

    I pulled the old alternator apart, brushes looked ok but it was full of black sludge thanks to my oil-dripping 2JZ. I degreased it good then bench tested it with a power drill and got a few volts out of it. Would that suggest it's working OK or was my bench test worthless? Obviously it was turning far slower than its normal operating range. I just want to know if it's worth putting it back in for a proper test, or if I should just send it off for a rebuild.

    Did you supply power to the IG and S terminals?
    I'm not really sure what rpm they start working at - the drill might just get enough rpm do to something.

    I just connected a multimeter to the big power outlet bolt thing with the negative on the body of the alternator, then spun it as fast as I could and the multimeter read about 2.6v. I didn't understand what the 3 pins on the back were for so I ignored them - I thought that was just something to do with the charge light? I don't understand alternators.

    one pin is for the charge light, one is to supply power to generate the field and one is used to determine battery condition.

    for a bench test you would need to connect IGN, BATT, alternator body (earth) and something as a load. maybe an old headlight? you would want to test if the alternator can supply current

    full charging RPM for the alternator would be about 3000rpm at a rough guess

    Lag is similar to the original turbos in non-sequential mode. Starts making boost at 2500, 5psi by 3000, full boost before 4000. I'm very happy with it - if it came on boost any earlier it would just wheelspin all over the shop.
