I started my reformed electrical system today.  The system is an exact Z16 with no mods.  No exciting sparks or smoke and everything worked.
However with the engine running I switched off the ALT and the 5A CB in the OVP circuit immediately tripped.
I reset and turned the ALT back on and everything operated normally.
Is this supposed to happen?
thanks

No, it should not happen. If the diode that is supposed to be across the alternator relay coil is missing, there would be a high voltage spike when the switch is opened, although it would have reverse polarity. I do not know if reverse polarity would trip the over-voltage protection module or not. The diode could be defective (open circuit) The banded end of an arc suppression diode should connect to positive.
