On the back of the dynamo have you got two Brown/Yellow wires connected to the large terminal. What alternator do you intend to fit.

I fitted a Dynamator (a 45 amp Alternator inside a Dynamo casing) so still looks original under the bonnet. Then used a "DUMMY" RB340 regulator box, available from WOSP, expensive yes, but a straight swap over with no wiring modifications needed at all, and this helps because all is reversable.
