300Tdi 110CSW Alternator

#1 Post by Troll Hunter » Mon Oct 23, 2017 11:35 pm

This is my first post here, so I am a very Newbie, and I'm seeking local knowledge. I want to replace my 65amp alternator with a higher output unit, preferably 100+amp. Can anyone please recommend a readily available new/used unit as fitted to vehicles in north America? I don't want to pay for trans-Atlantic shipping and import duty by sourcing one in UK.

Many thanks, in advance, for any suggestions and recommendations made.

Mike

There is no local one that is the same mount. You can buy from a local Rover parts supplier though if you want.

I wouldn't worry about ordering overseas. Here is the link to the post about all the places:

The trick is try and get a shipping service that uses Canada Post on this end, ie Royal Mail. Canada Post doesn't jab you on the duty feed. Fedex and UPS are absolutely brutal for extra brokerage fees.

Or just call Jeremy and he'll get you one. The alternator you probably want is a disco 1 300tdi. I believe its a 100 amp unit.

Fedex brokerage fee is $10. It is zero if you have an account and have the import fees charged to it. You can get an account online in a minute. It costs nothing.

There are no duties on parts for vehicles over 25 years old. Have them note this on the invoice. You want tariff code 9966.00.00

Locally is simpler and more convenient, but it will normally be cheaper importing. The local guy has to make money and he is paying the shipping and import fees.

The MAHLE LETRIKA alternator p/n 11.203.405 cross references to:

DELCO REMY:
DRA3289

FORD NEW HOLLAND:
82857207, 83961474, E3NN10B376AA, E3NN10B376AB, E3NN10B376AC, E3NN10B376AD, F1NN10B376AA

LUCAS:
LRA00109, LRA00122, LRA00132, LRA00530

MAGNETI MARELLI:
63324256

MAHLE LETRIKA (ISKRA):
IA0505, 11201505, AAK1345, MG207, 11201495, AAK1341

So your local best bet might be to find a Ford New Holland tractor dealer for a 100amp alt.

A lot of the part numbers above are for the 45 Amp, pre 300TDI left hand adjuster style alternators. They are not what is desired here. The Ford crossovers are for the 45 amp and 65 Amp units that fit 200TDI and earlier Defenders and Series.

The 100 Amp unit used on the 300TDI is different. Buy a proper OEM one. It should be labelled as a Marelli or Denso. Do not get an unbranded one. It will fail. Make sure you upgrade the power wiring.

Many thanks for the input, guys. I was hoping that a suitable unit common in north America would turn up, but it looks that if I'm to upgrade I need to get a Denso or Marelli unit. Guess I'll have to wait a while, since it isn't an urgent requirement.
