Yep.
I simply don't get why Ford Lehman owners would buy anywhere else.
Brian takes probably 10 calls seeking advice for every one that results in a sale, but he is happy to do it.
Even before I bought a bracket from him for a second alternator, he pointed out the risks that probably outweighed the gains.
I still brought the bracket, but it's in the pile of things whose ideas needed another think.

Thanks again
Richard on Dauntless in Mexico !!!

Curious. What were the risks versus gains?

A larger replacement alternator could put more belt tension on the fresh water pump leading to bearing failure. Not sure about adding a second alternator if that's what was meant.
