Hello again,

I decided to take a photo and post a pic of the problem, sorry if I could not make it clearer as it becomes distorted if i got too close.

You can see the green coolant pooling on top of the alternator. I also noticed some corrosion marks / stains that is evident on a small section on the outer part of the alternator...could be as said earlier a faulty hose or pipe leading to waterpump that requires attention.

Here is the pic.

Cheers, Peter

uhh is it just me or does that hose looks like its got a hole in it?

yeh I see what you mean, on the front edge in from the clamp...I reckon a new hose is a good idea...

just as the hose moves over the water pump thats why it would be leaking under running pressure just expands the hose a bit a bam water haha ive just spent 2 months re-buildin my eb and forgot about me gas converter leaking water!!

Thanks to everyone who responded.

Hmmm, I never have thought of that hose having a hole in it, all things are possible, I've purchased a new one today so will be replacing it Thursday. This will be second job...First job is to replace the HP hose to the power steering unit.

Might run some permatex around the end of hose going onto waterpump pick up pipe just in case.

Cheers,

agreed that you shouldn't have to use sealant but...the thermostat housing on mine was corroded and I wondered if OP's might have been similar..sealant just helps if the seal is less than perfect..

Thanks, seems it might be,

Will be replacing the hose when doing my coil springs, shockies and hubs.

Will let you know when I take the hose off as to its condition.

Cheers, Peter
