Alternator update

It seems ages since I posted about the alternator saga so it is probably time for an update. The new (well, re-built) alternator has been fitted and performs flawlessly so far. There's no whine through the headsets, there's no annoying low voltage light, and better still no fear of turning on the landing or taxi light, let alone the pitot heat.

After a couple more flight hours we'll take it out and re-torque the case bolts, something that will then be done every 100 hours. I'm hoping that this time I'll have an alternator that makes it through the year.
