Look at the B & C gear driven (off vacuum pump pad) alternator and lightweight starter (available direct from B&C or from Aircraft Spruce) Also, I have heard good things about the Odyssey gel cells (also available from Aircraft Spruce) Jason Bialek -----Original Message----- From: Klusmanp at aol.com [mailto:Klusmanp at aol.com] Sent: Monday, November 04, 2002 6:46 PM To: acro at gf24.de Subject: [Acro] Lightweight batteries and alternators I've got a 23 lb Concord SLA battery that is mounted behind the seat of my Pitts S-1S. I'm tailheavy (well, the plane is) so I'd like to replace the Concord battery with a lighter battery and alternator that I could mount forward of the firewall. Any recommendations on lightweight alternators and batteries and where to buy them? Thanks again, Paul Klusman P.S. Concord RG-25 battery for sale soon. Less than 6 months old.
