Re: HO Alternator & Serpentine Pulley Kit Install

Thanks for the response MS.

I'm going to have to add a HO alt to my to do list, and my budget.
The bank will be flooded's - I've had my fill of AGM's already.

I think my 44hp should handle it.

Btrafors, I've read the write up from Calder's presentation, that's why I'm looking at 3x240w solar panels just for my 500ah bank. I'd go bigger but it just won't fit.
Keep in mind those 500a alt's will suck HP from the prop. Better have a switch to kill them.
