Hopefully this weekend we will be in The Tiny Russian Village…

Citroen, Fiat, Peugeot and Volga

It took me three days, but after a bit of rewiring and alternator bracket jimmy rigging, I accomplished in putting a high amp alternator on Sammy the Volga….I even wired the tachometer to work at the same time…

I was able to install an alternator with 30 + more amps available (60 amp stock to 90 – 100 amps) and now it looks like we will have many less issues. Got power to spare for all the accessories. The only thing I will do in the Tiny Russian Village is to run a separate plug to allow Svetochka to be able to boil water for her tea…

Now that is living the High Life…

Once I discovered and it sunk in my thick head that it is the same alternator (With a bit of modification.) as fits a Citroen, Fiat, Peugeot and or a 3102 & 3110 Volga. I was able to search and find a very good price on an alternator. Thank goodness for Alibaba in China…

4400 rubles is what it cost us to get Sammy the Volga fixed. That is $67 give or take according to the day we bought it. You get use to daily variances in price after a few years. It is a learning process to buy at the exact moment, for if you buy smart, you will save many dollars….this alternator cost over $100 normally…

It is always something and I had fun doing it. Even if it was freezing cold outside the whole time… 😉

Time to go to The Tiny Russian Village…
