Cheers buddy i read something about the drainage not being good enough and some guy had found a quick fix will have another look at it. I've tested the terminals on the battery it's putting out between 11-12v

EDIT; ( 1st remove all connections to battery / alternator and clean + retighten - a naff connection will lose volts like that..,)

if it still SOUNDS o.k.,
remove the brush pack / voltage regulator unit.. with it still on the car

as that's what does the output..!!

Thanks i tested my battery again today I
And it was at 12.40v and the other day it was low 11s would the water from the scuttle drain make it do that and now it's drying out the volts are going up and it's starting to work again? Sorry to ask so many questions mate thanks again
