Burnt out alternator

Thu 22 Sep 2022 22:04
Still in Porto.

Engineer arrived 09:10 and by 11:00 he had repaired the cable and announced the job done.

By 11:05 smoke was coming out of the alternator and the alternator was declared caput.

Spent the afternoon trying to source a new replacement alternator or find someone who could re-wind the old one, with limited success. (More tomorrow)

On the positive side. Hector’s father organised Port tasting at Graham’s Lodge which was fantastic.

VIP tickets including 30 year old Queen’s 60th Jubilee vintage and a gorgeous 40 year old Tawny.
