As far as I know you can put it on your battery, and see if moves that way. I would see if I could get a elecrical tester first. not the whole thing just the bolt that the wire was attached to the Longer one.

How do you remove alternator on 1994 diamante?

Before removing the alternator and bracket assembly from the engine, loosen the assembly bolt by which the alternator is fixed at the alternator bracket.

NOTE: If this is a SOHC engine then remove the alternator through the transaxle side, through the bottom of the intake manifold plenum.

How do you put an alternator belt on a 1992 Geo Storm?

your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and power steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it. your belt tensioner is built in on the mounting bracket off the engine. you will only find two bolts that hold on the alternator to the engine, one is a pivot hinge, a long bolt that if loosened will allow the alternator to move away or closer to the engine, (tension). the other is on a sliding bracket on the front of the alternator that works with the pivot bolt. i can't remember whether its a 14 or 12 mm bolt. either way, just loosen both of the bolts, hammer or pry the alternator towards the engine, slip on the belt. make sure the belt fits into the grooves properly, then pry the alternator away from the engine. make sure the belt is extremely tight. i just replaced mine and i didn't pry hard enough and it slipped off halfway to a friends house, (not fun). anywas it's best to have someone pry the alternator and you tighten the bolts. in order to replace the alternator belt you have to remove the ac and power steering pump belt. both the ac compressor and the power steering pump work the same way as the alternator. loosen them bolts and hammer or pry them towards the engine to slip it off. good luck. i know i needed it.

What are the precedures from for replacing the alternator on a 1989 Ford Probe?

Ford manual calls for approximately 5 hrs of work and having to drop the front axle. There is an easier way! Remove alternator from brackets and work it accros the back side of the engine to the other side of the engine (opposite from were it is mounted at the other end of the engine compartment) until you find an opening large enough for the alternator to fit through. Once removed you can now install the new alternator working in reverse order. Time to complete approx. 45 min. GOOD LUCK. SPARKY.

How does Diesel generator work?

A diesel generator generally works in two parts. The first part is the diesel engine whitch works the same as any normal internal combustion piston engine, it has a out put shaft attached to the crank (the same as any car engine) which is conected to the actual generator. The generator is just a large alternator- the shaft of the alternator is driven by the diesel engine(usually no clutch is used). A governor is used between the alternator and the diesel engine so that when load is placed on the alternator (you plug a power tool in to the generator for example) the engine revs pickup to spin the shaft fast enough to produce sufficeint electricity. For further reference look up the separate parts in wikipedia -diesel engine -Alternator -governor valve

Why does using electrics in a car increase fuel consumption?

It causes the alternator to work harder to keep the battery charged. The engine spins the alternator and that requires the engine to work harder using more fuel. But, although that is very true, the amount of extra fuel you will use is negligible. Enjoy the electronics as the extra fuel used is so small as to be a non-issue.
