opti alternator

try widening the search that alternater is also fitted to see below either Mercury or Mariner
135 opt
150 opt and efi
175 opti
200 efi
you will find it is only the fairly modern efi that will fit

i'm not much on outboards but one thing i was thinking is, has this engine got a regulator box separate from the alternator, might it be that, take the alternator to a repair place that just specialise in alternators you'll probaly find its just a diode gone

No need to, Dan. The alternator never left my garage.
Glad you got it sorted in the end - sounded like it was all snowballing into a bit of a mess at one point. Well done.

Probably. He had a problem, it was going to bugger up his charters so he found a way to get it sorted - thats what I would expect/hope for from a charter company - but I expect in some cases it would have been a phonecall the day before to say "sorry engines not working, charters cancelled"

Oh, and he obviously appreciates the help he got from various people which is a good sign!
