      I have a 53 Normale. I didn’t want to change it to 12v, so I bought a new 6v battery, £150, and a new electronic regulator, £125. Now, the regulator has fried- it’s 15 months old- and the battery is on its last legs.

      So, I’m over to the dark (Slough?) side. I’ve a NOS genuine 2cv alternator, and a new 12v battery which goes in the 6v slot. The starter motor, I can deal with.

      Does anyone have a French or English car that they have converted to an alternator, and how did you do it, particularly the belt? And what about the coil, do I need a new one or can I avoid it…
