    Hi - 24 volt 180 HP Perkins diesel, I heard a slipping noise from engine bay for about 20 seconds then it stopped and the volts went over 30 volts on gauges. Ammeter also went to approx 10 amps for a short time then back to centre position(normal). Belt was tight when stopped. Was this the alternator playing up?
