OK, OG, can you measure up the gap between the top brackets on your alt?
Right, just measured.
Original alternator - a 65A Magnetti Marelli unit with official LR logo on it - gap between brackets (ignoring roll pin) is 82 or 83mm
New one I just bought the gap again excluding roll pin is exactly 70mm. The roll pin can only reduce that obviously not increase the gap.
Interestingly enough, so was the 120amp one I bought, but that said for a V8 on. This new one said Defender 300tdi !
