You have the OEM alternator. They used a Lucas unit in later cars.

The issue with Lucas electrical systems is the contacts. The brass gets tarnished and the pins get loose.

Clean all contacts until the're bright. Tighten up connections by crimping or putting a slight bend in the pins. Use dielectric grease sparingly when refitting.

Do not open the wiring harness unless it has melted!

The early JH's will be 40 years old next year! CLEAN THE CONTACTS EVERY 40 YEARS!
