Default Rover 75/MGZT Parts List and Drawings

This site has a complete parts list for Rover's and MG's. A wealth of information if you are looking for a part number or drawing of an item.

It is in russian, but the Babelfish link will do a pretty good translation.

I have previously posted this elsewhere on the forum, but here goes:

http://babelfish.altavista.com/babel...c%2Fr%2F122520

OR

http://209.85.135.104/translate_c?hl...u/epc/r/122520

Default Alternator Operation

Some useful info on Alternator operation and construction.
Not exactly the same as R75 but a good guide.

The Rover 75 CDTi uses a three wire Alternator.
Heavy Duty wire (battery charging) is bolted to the Alternator, then connects to the Starter and onto to the Battery +ve (the heavy wire)
The other two connections in the small plastic plug...
One is the Field/ Excitation connection from Ignition on switch via a fuse.
The other is connected to the ECU, this is the one that operates the Charge Light on the dash.
