    err....I think yo u have a number of people on the forum that would suggest and back you up that access to and working on a Nova is essential (to mental health at least)

    But surely it’s essential to bring your loved one home Phill? I take it the garage/living room is still empty .... or has Alison reclaimed it?

    I have the self same problem only here in Spain you get stopped, fine 600€ and sent home, unless you are walking the dog, ALONE, any dog will do. I have all the parts including a new MIG welder and I can't get to the car or BMW either and we are locked down until 11th April now, and it's not advisory. Managed to get out today, but emergency trip to the dentist.

    Och well, I guess Mrs Bluenova will get her wish for a freshly painted and decorated house!!

    Stay safe everyone ... even if prolonged close proximity with your loved ones drives you insane!!

    I wish their showroom had as much as their website, 15 mins away from me!

    Do you need to change the Fuel pump when you switch from Dynamo to Alternator Alistair?

    Yes Phill, I'm pretty sure you do I guess I'll know for sure once I start stripping the engine.

    PS ... I've been researching this tonight and it looks like in addition to a new (shorter) fuel pump, I'll also need a new (shorter) push rod to drive it. If anyone has done the generator/alternator conversion please let me know if I'm wrong!

    Wish I could help but I am totally outside the box on alternators having mine in the middle not off-set and no mechanical pump but even with that the standard dizzy still fits. But fuel pump? No way.

    With standard off-set alternator a short pump fits, just.
