PostSubject: Stud, Bolts & Alternator equals a bad day   Sat Jun 26, 2010 7:46 pm

Novice working on my '96 Riviera with the object of replacing that stupid little elbow that squirts coolant all over my engine. Took out the alternator, took the pulley and put in the new elbow - no problems, then comes reassembly ... I have 1 stud and several bolts and I am in a quandry where the stud goes and don't remember what bolts go where to secure the alternator... not sure if it was the drinking or not, but now it has come back to bite me. This is a non-supercharged V6 and the pulley and alternator are down for the count until I figure out where this stud goes. If someone would be so kind as to direct me with some pictures of where this should go, I would appreciate it and be forever in your debt. Thank you for your kind patience with such idiocy.

not sure how the N/A motor differs from the S/C one but on my L67 there are 3 13mm bolts holding the alternator on. one long one at the bottom, one threaded bolt at the side where the intake is, then the smaller of the 3 goes at the back into the black metal bracket. there is also a small 10mm bolt on the bracket that goes to the alt too.
as for the pulley and assembly, with our motors it is connected to the front cover and the bolts require thread sealant. there should be remnants of the sealant on those bolts.

Can you take a picture of what parts you have left over?

Now that is the kind of self-deprecating politeness that is refreshing to see on the board...

Now let me see if I can find a photo for you...

Thanks for the information, but this is the stud I am referring to:



Looking at the alternator, on the right hand side, it comes from the inside of the engine out, but I am not sure if it is this stud or one of those long 13mm's that also secures the bracket ... thanks again!

Thanks to all for the quick replies and I am now leak-free and no longer running through coolant. Thanks also for your patience on my ignorance and I will be sure that my next set of stupid questions are done in a sober manner. smile
