Second the B&C light weight starter. They are phenomenal and turn the prop
much much faster than the Prestolites (which seem to wear out very quickly).
I wore out two Prestolites in one year.

I just wish I could put the B&C alternator on my certified Pitts too sigh...

	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)

	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.
