Just spent the last day and a bit removing the old Alternator.
Have a bit less skin than I started with!

Just about to install the new one and noticed that the new one only has one place for a little rubber pipe (guessing a vacuum pipe) whilst the old one had two of these pipes.

My question is what do I do?
Block one off, in which case which one.
Join them up somehow and plug them both into one.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

"T" joint them into one. A nip to most hardware stores will hopefully provide the parts. If there a compression (shark tooth) fitting if you know what I mean, they slide inside the existing pipe. Be sure to get a good fit but not overly tight and ALWAYS makes sure you use small tie clips of jubilee clips as a secondary fail safe. A loose vacuumed hose can suck up crap and then your buggered as if usually buggers up the pump at the other end.
