I finally have all the parts in hand for assembling the electrical system tying the alternators to ships power system. One shunt came with the firewall forward kit from Vans, but since I am installing a backup alternator, I had to order another shunt, fuse and fuse holder.

I am going to place the fuses and shunts on the motor side of the firewall close to the battery contractor. I laid out the bolt holes on an aluminum plate that will hold all the parts.

Then I fabricated copper buss connectors to tie the shunts to the fuse holders and to tie the fuse holders to the electrical system. The lead from each alternator will connect to the shunt for that alternator.

Here is the assembly with the fuses installed.
