Make sure both the top and bottom bolts are tight, if the bottom is loose the alternator can "wiggle".

I put a slightly larger diameter thick washer on the top bolt and it cured "the agony of the screech"!

This is moderately difficult. Disconnect the battery, use a 15mm box wrench to pull tensioner and slip belt off, there is a top bolt and a bottom bolt on alternator to take loose, also 15mm. once it it loose you can unplug the one wire, and take the nut off the battery terminal, wiggle the alternator around and take it out, install in reverse order.

I have a 1989 celebrity and it was quiet easy to change the alternator, done it a dozen times. There should be 1 main bolt in the back on the bottom of the alternator,(side toward cab). This bolt goes all the way through the mount. Then on the front side there should be a bolt that screws into a mount. Disconnet the main battery cable and unplug the wires on the bottom and there it should be loose.
