> I don' think that polarisation exercise did anything to anything. And, turning that switch in the boot is NOT the same as removing a cable from the battery. If he had removed the black/white cable from the switch it would have been the same though. That black/white cable grounds the ignition when the switch is turned off, it's like a Stone Age immobilizer if you like.

>> The BJ8 genny saga continues. (My nephew is an Air Traffic Controller and his shifts have not enabled him to get down to the car as often as he might have liked. I’ve just retired, so the boot’s on the other foot on my side of the Channel!)
>> Now, he’s done some tests which I think are pretty conclusive. Any of you gurus out there who are electrically minded – R2D2 eat your heart out -….I’d appreciate your input.
>> See Pierre-Henri’s email, below. (My comments in brackets)
>> 1) Polarization
>> -Then I turned off the switch in the boot to disconnect terminal - from the battery (same as disconnecting a terminal from the battery). The engine stopped instantly.
>> (This is per an answer from Norman Nock that I’ve kept on file for ages. He advised:- turn on engine, disconnect a battery terminal and, if engine stops, the genny is knackered. Norman was The Man and it seems like a good, neat test. Is PH correct in assuming that turning off the battery switch is the same as removing a battery lead??)
>> I could take it home and disassemble it?
>> (Yes. To check the brushes. Only. We don’t have the facilities or skill in either location to do more than the brushes.)
