i have an 87 wrangler with 4.2 carb motor, v-belt, and used 2 different style 1/4 thickness alternator adjustment brackets and a tranglular bracket piece from the junk yard. i used the holes where the comp used to mount. alignment of the belt wasnt to hard either. use the 2 adjusting brackets on top and trangular one on bottom left, facing engine. the adjustment brackets i mounted on top are on top are a 1/4 inch thick and , i mounted the single hole in the old comp. mounting holes front and back ,on the backside of old comp. mounting hoes, you need brckets that have an offset on the end where the single hole is. i think mine came off Dodge pickup 360 engine alternator , hopefully you can get a rough idea of what i did never had any problems. it did take some patience playing with brackets to get it right, but didnt have to drill any holes, oh, the upper brackets are 5" long and have an offset on single hole end , and the bottom piece is 4 9/16" center to center kid of triangular shaped which helps add strenghth

How to you change an alternator in a 1991 Saab 900s?

To access the alternator, you have to remove the A/C compressor. First you must remove the alternator belt by removing the adjustment bolt on the alternator. Move the alternator as far down as you can. This will give you access to the lower bolt on the A/C mounting bracket. Remove the A/C belt. You may have to remove the idler pulley to do this. Remove the three bolts (probably Allen head) that mount the A/C compressor bracket to the engine and swing the A/C compressor off to the right side of the engine compartment. Do NOT disconnect the A/C hoses. You should now be able to remove the bolt(s) that hold the alternator in place. Assembly is reverse of disasssembly.

do you mean the aluminum bracket holding the alternator broke at the bolt holes? do you know that there should be a steel bracket BEHIND the alternator also? when engine usually replaced, sometimes this steel bracket is not replaced and instead a shorter bolt is used to fasten alternator (3 bolts) to aluminum bracket. there should be a longer bolt which goes from the front of the alternator on the left side, thru the alternator and thru that steel bracket and into part of engine?? this part not clearly understood as explained to me by mechanic husband. he had the same problem and corrected when bracket kit purchased from local Chevy dealer; about $197 in Hawaii. hope this bit helps...

How do you install an alternator on 1992 Ford E350?

Start by disconnecting the negative battery cable, then loosen the hinge and bracket bolts on the alternator. There should only be one of each. Rotate the alternator around the bracket to release tension on the belt and electrical wires far enough that they can be disconnected. Remove the bracket bolt then the hinge bolt and the alternator should come right out. Installation is the reverse of removal. To tighten the belt back up, be sure the bracket bolt is loose then use a prybar between the alternator body and the engine block to pry the alternator along bracket. When the desired tension is reached, tighten the bracket bolt back down. Boom Done

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1992 Dodge Ram 250 Van 318?

The thermostat is located under a housing that is connected to the motor side of the upper radiator hose. To access the thermostat, disconnect the radiator hose from the motor and remove two bolts from this housing. If I remember correctly however, you will probably need to remove the serpentine belt and also disconnect the battery (to protect the next item), alternator, AC compressor, and bracket that holds the alternator and AC compressor just to be able to get to the thermostat. If that is correct, don't remove wires from alternator (or you'll probably be buying a new one) or system lines from compressor (or you'll have to recharge it). Just disconnect them from the bracket and swing them out of the way. Hope this helped! Mark
