Here's something I want to add to this whole mess in regards to the alternator not charging. I didn't point it out in the first thread, figured if anyone actually read the email he sent me that the obvious clue to what was wrong would jump right out. Check out the bold-
If you check the voltage at the Alt + on a properly connected alternator it will show battery voltage with the key on or off. Showing 0v indicates that either the cable to the battery was not properly connected or the unit was not grounded. In the thread slamming Mechman started by Brandon a couple weeks ago I pointed out that the unit was not properly installed, the reading of 0v is your first clue. No ground = no voltage. The brackets we use to adapt this unit to his Jeep are powdercoated and will NOT ground the unit properly. We provide a ground stud and properly sized lug with the unit along with instructions and a tag explaining that upgraded cables and ground are required.Originally Posted by Email from Brandon aka.

Here's the findings from the inspection of Brandon's unit to go along with the video I posted earlier.
We have done everything in our power at this time to satisfy Brandon as a customer. We have provided an alternator that produces the advertised power to fit his vehicle that functions properly. Improper installation was the problem here, I have provided proof and expect Brandon to do the right thing at this point. The right thing would be to apologize for the countless posts slamming Mechman with no justification on this forum, Facebook and anywhere else he posted, contact his bank and stop the charge-back, and end his false claims on the internet. Making false statements is not only in bad character, but it can also be used against him in his future aspirations. It's better to start doing things right at 17 than having to learn the hard way once an adult. Stopping the charge-back will stop me from having to pursue legal action against him and his legal guardians, something I do not want to do but when someone commits fraud and it costs me money I will pursue.Originally Posted by Letter to Brandon from Eric at Mechman
