Bracket mostly complete. Requires one more bolt putting through on the rear alternator bracket and a couple nylocs.

It tightens up straight and holds nicely.

Yeah, but twelve Volts suck.

Not for keeping the Watts up and the Amps down.

I prefer André-Marie Ampère to James Watt any day of the week.
Watt. What a bloody phony.

Bolted all the bits on. Got the timing set well enough.

Alternator puts out, which is nice. At idle I went from 12.4V to 13.3, which went up to nearly 14V when revved. Belt doesn't squeal either.

Calling that success
