The FS1-14B alternator's lightweight (6.0 pounds), compact size and flexible installation, on either Continental or Lycoming engines, makes it the ideal alternator solution for a wide variety of kit-built aircraft. Another distringuishing feature is that, depending on the builder’s needs and aircraft configuration, the FS1-14B alternator can be used as the aircraft’s primary power source.
About the FS Series alternator:
These are complete kits which include everything you need to add an alternator to your experimental aircraft engine including not only the alternator, but also all new brackets, spacers, mounting hardware and belt.
The sheer coupling from the drive port to the innards of the alternator sheered within 10 minutes of installation! Looks like a fault within the plastic moulding. Not impressed with its quality.
