Re: V6 Alternator Upgrade DIY W/ pics

It's not as straightforward as I had hoped

The mounts are very similar in size and location but not exactly the same.

I was able to use M10 fender washers on the top mount and it'll work fine that way.
Two washers on each side of the alternator space it perfectly so the pulley lines up with everything else on the belt

The bottom slider bracket is where I've hit a snag. The alternator mount had to be trimmed so it would line up with the bracket but the alternators mount point isn't long enough to use the slot in it. That and the radius is all wrong

Before trimming the bottom mount

And after

And the reason I'm not done yet

If I had the metal fab tools to do it I could have made a new slider bracket but since I don't I'll have to find someone to make it for me.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this other than having something fabbed?
