Hi Shaun,
I have one, but I wont be able to copy it until Thursday, if that's OK.
Just to confirm though, it is a UK car?
Kind regards

Is it the 3 fuse box version or single, and do you have a dynamo with voltage regulator?

Hi Shaun,
Attached is the wiring diagram for the +2s with the three fuse boxes and dynamo.
The changeover is quite easy, if a little daunting at first. There are 3 or 4 cables in the dash that need to be joined together (from the amp and ignition I think). Then I retained the regulator but run a link across the back. there are two earth's (black) and two small brown & yellows that need to be joined at the regulator. I also changed from a amp meter to a volt meter.
There are many links on the web to sites where people have converted to an alternator.
Good luck and if you need any help just shout.

David
