Help! AOG! Does anyone have a spare 655997 Alternator? They are on back order and it seems they’re only for the XL2.

Try to see the part number on the one that's currently installed. All alternators for continental are now manufactured by Kelly. This should be the correct one https://www.qaa.com/products/aircraft-a ... nator-assy

The alternator is actually a Hartzell ES-6012-6.

Airpower indicates that they are in stock: https://www.airpowerinc.com/es-6012-6

I couldn't get the QAA link to work, but I found them here: https://www.qaa.com/products/aircraft-a ... nator-assy

Yes this is the actual part. Continental does not build them, they just invent a part number for everything.

Thanks for the input. The new Alternator is with its owner and will be installed this weekend.
