Caffine & Machine - Opening Sunday 27Th Oct 2018

16 October 2018 - 03:10 PM

Seen this place opening on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/events/188752982016954/) 

 

No idea if it is any good, but might be a good place for meet ups or just a destination to drive too?

 

I will probably pop down on Saturday, so will report back.

 

This is what they say about themselves:

 

A Coffee house, licensed bar and restaurant, boutique b&b, and living art gallery, C&M is designed very simply as a place to go, a destination in and of itself if you appreciate moving things. With fabulous food, mind-blowing coffee and high-end rooms, C&M offers everything you expect from a modern member’s club - except you don’t have to be a member to enjoy it.

Come and enjoy our opening... see you there!

Alternators

07 October 2018 - 12:52 PM

Hi all

 

Part of my engine swap for the winter project involves trying to keep the original alternator as it is small and out of the way.

 

The engine is a Ford Fiesta ST150, Duratec.

 

The plug is a `type 4' as per the attached.  https://drive.google...V3H4SNfaQZg_vds

 

Now, the IG 12v live and the warning light are OK, but the Signal output is my query. 

 

Is this needed to make the alternator work? from what i have googled it just checks the batteries state of charge and then adjusts the output.  Is this correct?

 

So, how would this be wired in on a kit car, or is it ecu controlled and has to be left out?  What are the potential issues of leaving this unconnected?

 

If anyone is able to help that would be great.

 

Cheers

 

Steve
