E-bay $20 turbocharger?

In all seriousness, i've never seen that before. Maybe a cooling duct of some type?

Is it an original rover part? or maybe a TVR component?

This still wont solve much, but the same back end was on all the "Wolfs" we drove in the desert. Some had dual alternators to run commo equipment, and this style alt was on each one. None of them had anything hooked to it, although it looked like a duct hose could go on it for some reason or another.

If it was closer to the manifold, I'd say it was to warm up canned food.

No pix of the attachment, but here's one of the engine bay. I'm guessing that it could be turbine housing to a supercharger...

Looks like it is a tube mated to the rear of the altermator. It might be used to cool the alterator or decrease electrical interference, but it is an integral part of the alterator. You might post the picture on the UK D90 or military site and see what they say.

In all honesty, some high output alternators have provisions for cooling, I have no knowledge of Rover applications, but I know BMW produced a water-cooled alternator for the 7-series "Prtotection" models a while back.

I think all the new BMW's use the water cooled ones. I am pretty sure the newer 5's and 7's both do, but I don't know about the 3's. The tubing is usually smaller though, I think about the size of a heater core hose.

No, BMW uses 'em. Of course it's probably the worst idea LR could come up with considering British Electronics as they are!

hi all, that pipe is indeed an air feed from the rear of the alternator, if you look at the back you can see it bolts into the rear casing I have seen others that have a vent and are not removeable, the pipe should be connected to the air inlet before the filter to provide an air flow through the alternator when used in hot climates or if there is expected to be a large constant load.

I had a number of Lada Niva's that had this feature as standard.

regards

Gren
