Hi

I am planning to use a B&C alternator as a backup mounted on the vacuum pad of my engine.

Has anyone used a B&C BC462-3H alternator. I am interested in confirming that it will fit on the back of the engine. As I will be using a 90 degree oil filter adapter I will also be using the required spacer.

Cheers

Les

Les,
Call them or email B&C direct to check.  Using their Oil Filter Adapter (needs a spacer to clear the engine mount) with either their old SD-20 or their current BC410H there was a requirement for a spacer on the alternator also.

Hi Bob

I did speak to TJ at B&C yesterday. He was most helpful in deciding which alternator would be best for my application. He also spoke about the spacers.

I just wanted to see if anyone else has done this and find out what, if any, issues they ran into.

Cheers

Les

Are you using the Lycoming horizontal adapter? If so that alternator won’t fit. However it will work with the B&C 90 degree adapter. Just check there sight or call them. They are very knowledgeable and helpful. I have the BC-410H on my 540 and it fits fine with the B&C 90 degree oil filter adapter.

I had a 2.5 inch spacer for my oil filter adapter thinking that would clear space for the alternator but after getting the alternator spacing kit found out I neeeded to shorten the oil adaptor by half so had a machinist cut it down to fit.

Hi

I spoke to B &C again after conforming which oil filter adapter my engine builder would be using - it is from B&C . Here is what I received from B&C via email:

If memory serves, your IO-540 will be going in an RV-10; and with that in mind, here is what would be needed:

BC700-H Oil Filter Adapter
FK502-1.4 OFA Spacer Kit (1.4”)
BC462-3H Alternator
FK710-1.25 Alternator Drive Extension/Spacer Kit (1.25”)

Regarding your questions: yes, there are indeed two “spacers” involved – a 1.4” spacer for the BC700-H Oil Filter Adapter, so that it clears the RV-10 engine mount, and a 1.25” drive extension/spacer for the BC462-3H Alternator, so that it clears the Oil Filter Adapter. As I might have mentioned on the phone, the above makes for a tight installation … but it should space everything out so that the interferences are negotiated.

Cheers

Les

Back in 2008, when I was trying to figure out how to fit the SD-20 alternator and the oil filter, I tried every combination I could find and could not make it work. I had more than one conversation with B&C. They were very helpful and even suggested I look at competitors oil filter spacers when we could not get the B&C to fit. I suspect that the alternator drive extension was not available back in those days. I ended up putting my oil filter on the firewall with the Airwolf system and have always been grateful that things worked out as they did. Oil changes are a breeze with the Airwolf remote oil filter.
