the alternator checked out good today. my question is if the diodes are bad causing the intermittant stalling and the truck is running fine when i test it, will the diodes still test as bad or good? since the stalling is so sporadic it would be impossible to test while it is acting up. the belt is tight. so tomorrow i am going to take off the belt and check the bearings on it, it does not make any noise right now.

Tony Brooks had a similar issue with his '94 a long time ago, turns out one of the resistors on his (likewise) crappy alternator kept burning out ignition modules as well. A new alt sorted it for him after many months of agony.

I - along with several others - have gotten the Delco CS130 from www.actionalternator.com. It was around $250 shipped, and is a nice 140amp unit that I've beat on with success so far.

If you call and tell them it's for a '94 Defender they'll know which one to send you. I'd also suggest getting the plug-in harness that you can use to splice into the existing factory wiring (included in the above $250 total if I recall).

I don't see it on the website, but I have one as a spare here so I know it exists. I would give them a call.

So even if the alt tests good, diodes, charging etc., it can still be faulty?

There's some very interesting reading here. I'm having the same problem with my 90. I had this problem a couple of years ago. A new coil solved the problem, but not this time. I've replaced the coil, dizzy, cap, rotor arm and leads. It made no difference so took it to the shop 200 later and it's running better but nowhere as good as it should be. Now I've read this post I've got a few more things to try.....
My biggest problem is going to be finding all the connectors and bits on a retro fit Efi V8 loom....
Good luck, have fun... John

Should not be hard as the engine harness is almost self contained and all the 14CUX stuff is pretty similar between disco/RRC/NASD90

Thanks, I'll have a look over the weekend.... We've just had the first hard frost of winter so not the best of time to start looking for faults on a 90... I could be out there all winter just listing the faults....

This has given me an idea reading about the alternators... My wife has got an 04 MG ZTT which keeps getting a flat battery. The alternator was tested and came back good but reading the above it still may be faulty...

I love this site and the help and advice you get from it and the friendliness of the people, don't know why I've stayed away so long.... Thanks

Flat battery is more likely faulty battery or current drain ... With vehicle off check for how much draw is on the battery with a meter ... Anything above 50mA should be rectified

It's had two new batteries under warranty as the shop can't find any electrical fault. We have got a new water leak in to the boot(trunk) and I wondered if it was causing a short but have been informed by the shop that's not it.... I'm not so sure though....
Thanks for the replies...And sorry for high jacking the thread....
