Alternators

Recommended Posts

I'm Building an AeroCanard with an IO-360. Anyone have a good idea

for an alternator? I was thinking of using the B&C LR-3 volt regulator. It's gonna be IFR and some kind of EFIS.

From all I've read, that's the best combination. If not already there, you might also want to get Bob Nuckolls' book / CD and join the aeroelectric list for many tips and tricks. See aeroelectric.com


I can be reached on the "other" forum http://canardaviationforum.dmt.net

I have been using a 55 amp Hundai alternator for over 7 years. No problems the voltage regulator is built in. Cheeper than B&C it includes bracket for Lycoming. Sold by Mark Landoll's Electric Service

2112 SW 76 st.

Oklahoma City, OK 73159

405-685-0239

he also sells light weight starters.

Alternator, bracket, shipping under $800.00

I used Landoll's alternator on my LZ but in reading AeroElectric Conn

I thought maybe I would be better off using the LR-3 regulator but the B&C alts are pretty pricey so I hoped to put it on some other alternator. I think I'll take the B&C picture to the auto store and say I want one like that. It's probably a Nippondenso which is widely or wildly used, I think. I don't know though the old relay type regulators failed often but I have never seen one of the solid state ones fail in an over volt condition.
