Created: September 16, 2005
Minis built up to 1969 (i.e. MKI & MKII) were positive ground while MKIII and onwards were built negative ground. The polarity of the alternator can not be changed, so if the alternator you have does not conform to your car, you must change your car.

When fitting a new or rebuilt generator to your Mini, certain instructions will usually be found with it. These instructions advise the course of action to polarize the unit and are the same instructions for changing the cars electrical system from positive to negative earth or vice-versa.
