Re: Atomic 4 Alternator replacement

The other thing you have to consider is engine load. The A4 is only 30HP engine. Start adding significant alternator load to it and you may find yourself underpowered. ISTR reading of somebody who'd done just that to themselves, back not long after I started reading SN.

But that's something I have to add to The List. I'm sure we'll want more than that 35A alternator if we ever do start cruising.
