Thank you for all your answers.
I have now found out what the problem was & thought I would share it so it may help others.
As I said in my post The alternator was made by Valio in the end of alternator where the cooling pipe fits there are 2 carbon brushes that were soldered in these were warn down
& after fittiing new carbon brushes the alternator now works perfectly.
Will be returning the so called recycled working alternator to get my money back.
Thanks again to all who offered help.
