The Tale of an Alternator

Taking a break from giving maintenance advice to others, AVweb editor Mike Busch troubleshoots and resolves an alternator problem on his Cessna T310R, and manages to save about $1,000 in the process. He offers an interesting case study in how a maintenance-involved aircraft owner can get better maintenance for less money.

Also some helpful suggestions for dealing with those elusive intermittent problems that never seem to happen when the A&P is watching.
