Overview

These alternator kits are FAA PMA Certified to replace the vast majority of popular general aviation alternators. They include everything you need to replace your current alternator using the existing belt and brackets. Where required, the kit will also include brackets, spacers and hardware.

An alternative to high-priced, marginally-performing, rebuilt used replacement aircraft alternators. These Plane-Power alternators are the product of years of research, development and intensive testing. Each component has been engineered, developed, tested and re-tested exclusively for use in general aviation aircraft. As a result of these efforts, Plane Power alternators offer significant improvements over legacy aircraft alternator offerings including:
    Generate substantially higher power at lower engine RPMs
    Generate significantly less heat while producing rated power
    Generate rated power at typical aircraft cruise RPMS
    Vastly improved balancing drastically reduces bracket failure
    Greater reliability for significantly increased service life
    Weigh up to four pounds less
Plane-Power alternators are warrantied for 2-years against component failures.

Included Hardware May Vary Per Kit

Reviews

Seems to provide output at t lower RPM than the original (Ford, I believe) alternator. The same previous alternators slight whine in the headset is gone. Has been on the aircraft over a year now, and is still doing great. Is on a towplane that has probably had at least 200 stop-starts in the pat year.

This alternator is much more reliable than the old Ford one. My last Ford only lasted 56 hrs and then the bearings seized up in flight.

Beware there are two alternator kits with very similar numbers. This is the one for aircraft originally built with alternators, there is a different pulley size for those retrofitted from generators. Confirm before purchase. Easy to return as long as you havent installed it yet. Good thing we checked.

Fanatic product. Used on my PA28-140. Say goodbye to alternator issues. Plane power is a wonderful product.

An easy installation with the supplied hardware. The alternator easily handles the full electrical load even at idle on my Lake Buccaneer (quite substantial with the Janitrol heater, and defogger fan plus all the usual lights pitot heat etc.)

Did some research before accepting my A&P recommendation for a rebuilt OEM alternator for my Piper Arrow III. The reviews said a new Plane Power alternator was the better option. My A&P had no objection. But the lower price for a new Plane Power alternator closed the deal. New? Lighter? Better low speed amps? AND less expensive? Don’t see that in general aviation much.

The instruction were missing. Also it cost me $40 dollars to ship my old alternator back of core charge. I purchase a new alternator why do I have to send back a good core.

Did not fit my 1971 Cardinal RG. Hartzell swapped it for there Ford style. Too much money. at the end of the end could have gotten an OH unit much cheaper. Hartzell was excellent to work with. Service was excellent.

Aircraft Spruce assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base.

Q: Hello, I curious on this alternator AL12-P70, what RPM speed do you need to run this alternator? I am with an OEM for an electrical distribution and we are developing test capabilities and this alternator was mentioned so I need to know how fast a motor needs to run to operate this alternator. Thank you.

The AL12-P70 (07-01001) is considered a Prestolite replacement. The AL12-P70 (reuses some in place Prestolite mounting parts) and the AL12-70 (kit includes all required mounting parts) are primary alternators used on Lycoming Engines. Both are designed to operate at cruse anywhere between 6000 and 9000 alternator RPM. Generally speaking this means the engine RPM would be somewhere between 2000 and max cruse RPM.

Q: Do you need a capacitor for this alternator, or is it built in?

Per the manufacturer: Plane Power alternators do not include capacitor's in their alternators.

Q: I have a 24-Volt Cessna 172N. Will I need the bracket, or will the one for the old DOFF alternator work? Is the AL24-F60 the correct replacement?

Yes, P/N# 07-00999 will work with a Cessna 172N. The bracket is not included in the kit.

Q: Which breaker do I need with alternator AL12-P70?, is 40 Amp OK?

You can use a 70 amp breaker. If your aircraft is rated for 40 amps you may want to keep the 40 amp breaker. There is not one specific breaker that we recommend.

Q: Interested in the AL12-C60 in some pictures they have belts and tensioner bracket where it is slotted to adjust your belt tension and in other pictures there is not. Does this alternator come with the bracket?

No. This does not come with this bracket.

Q: Id like to purchase a AL12-F60C alternator kit for a C180. Does the kit contains all necessary installation brackets? Also is the alternator comes with an internal voltage regulator?

No, this does not include a bracket. You must use the one already installed. No, they do not have internal voltage regulation built in.

Q: Where do I find the weight for Plane Power alternator AL12-C60?

This will be 10.9lbs.

Q: Regarding AL12-F60: Do you need external regulator?

Yes, this is externally regulated.

Q: What is the weight of the AL24-70?

Approx 9.9 lbs.

Q: What is the weight of the AL12-P70 alternator?

The alternator weighs approx 13.20 lbs.
