“In this stage you’ll build the alternator and fit the pulleys onto the engine distribution cover ready to install them in the next stage.




Materials: The Belt is soft PVC rubber, but the other parts in this stage are plastic.

NOTE: I have slightly changed the order of my steps from the Agora instructions to make things a bit easier.

Steps 1-2

Firmly press the keyed post of the Alternator Pulley (Part 1) into this matching post of the Alternator, as shown:

To add some additional color, you may note that I ‘painted’ the through bolts of my Alternator with a Metallic Gold Sharpie:

Fully press the pin of the Alternator Pulley (Part 2) into the hole at the center of Alternator Pulley (Part 1), as shown:

Step 4

Fit the pin of the Alternator Bracket into this smaller hole on the back of the Alternator, and then align the larger screw holes:

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:


The front of our DB5 engine is coming along quite nicely. These parts will be mounted to the engine in the next stage, so keep these assemblies (and the unused Belt) nearby.
