Bottom Mount with Alternator

Here's a couple of different looks at how the alternator will mount to the new bracket. The first one is out of the car but in the proper orientation.

I did run into one minor problem with the bolt hole size on the alternator versus the bracket. If I used a mounting bolt that fit snuggly in the alternator, it was too big for the mounting bracket. If I used the bolt that fit properly in the mounting bracket, it left too much slop in the alternator. I tried to find an insert/sleeve for the alternator but couldn't find one properly sized. I thought about drilling out the bracket to accept a larger bolt but didn't want to risk messing up a hard-to-find part. One of the things I do for fun is string tennis rackets and build golf clubs and, as a result, I have rolls of very thing adhesive backed lead tape. A few wraps of lead tape around the bolt shaft and I had a perfect fit!

In the next view you're looking straight down at the alternator without the top bracket installed. It's just flopped over lying on the inner fender but it gives a clear view of the "on car" bottom mounting.

Almost done. It's time to move on to the top mounting bracket - Next
