Hi all, I'm new to all this and need some help and advice, I have a 1973 t2 camper and I'm having carb and alternator problems, the engine is a 2000cc air cooled, the battery is new but not charging can anyone help me or point me in the right direction. Many thanks Alanj.

Alternator problems just need chasing with a multimeter, but first check is the warning light. This provides power to energize the alternator, if the light does not come on them no power is going through to get things started, if the light is working then check the connections between alternator and battery and battery to body and to starter.

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity
