Land Rover Lightweight 24v FFR 1984 model Alternator options.

Question

My LLR charging system is u/s and as the cost of a Mk4 Generator panel at !000 pounds is too much for me I have been looking at alternatives. Being under the floor also increases the aggravation of working on or changing the panel.

I do have a reconditioned Defender 24v 90 amp Generator FV1068364 and wonder if this could be used to directly charge my two 12volt batteries instead of the original No 10 Mk3 FV760740 to Mk 4 Generator Panel set-up?

Alternatively some Toyota Land Cruisers have 24v 30 amp regulated output alternators which could be fitted to the Series 3 12volt bracket.

Or change everything to 12volt.

 

All comments gratefully received.

I used a 28V lorry alternator, till the starter packed up..

It is an option if originality is not a big deal.

I believe on a Dutch language Facebook page "prikkers markt" there were a few panels for sale fot not to much.

Thanks for your reply. I agree with you that are second hand MK 4 generator panels out there but the transistorised voltage regulator is very specialised in terms of checking if it works and I don't need to split the charge between the vehicle batteries and the radio batteries. So from your experience it seems that any regulated output 24v generator should work OK.

Unhelpfully the seller has omitted to tell us the Mk of this Generator No.10

 

Judging by the arrangement of the heatsinks, it appears to be a Mk 2 or earlier & was not intended to be used with the transistorised Generator No.9 Mk 4.
