885 Altenator

Post by dwighted » Mon Jun 17, 2019 12:50 am

I have an 885 / CK 380 with a Lucas alternator and I can not figure out how to get the plastic plug on the back unplugged.

I need to get the starter out as it is not working 100%, sometimes it clicks and sometime it will crank properly.

With the front loader on it and power steering hoses, need to move the starter forward to get around everything.

Got the alternator loose, just need to get that plug off.

There is a plastic cover on the back of the alt too.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you by saying "plastic plug ", mean the electrical connector, then you have to turn the securing spring to the side before you unplug the connector by pulling it to the rear.

Ollek,

On the alternator the little spring is gone.

I got a little better grip on the plug and wiggled and pulled and got it off. Been a day or two since that has been unplugged. I'll give it a good brushing before reassembly.

Alternator is now removed.

This afternoon is drain the oil and remove filter.

Then starter should come out nicely.

Thank you for your help.

On re-assembly spray it with some Lanox. this product has lanolin in it and helps to lubricate the connections. I have done this for years and it does not short out.
