did you buy this used? sounds like some parts are missing.
should have been a different alternator bracket for it, also a bracket that bolts to the block right next to the oil filter for the support.
As far as the bolts they are 8x25mm
as far as the brake booster, cut the plastic hose about 2 or so inches from the brass fitting.slip the hose over the fitting and plastic hose and use clamps

As far as the belt is concerned: grab a 15mm wrench and slap it on the bolt on the tensioner pulley. Push it back towards the rear of the car and it wil give you the slack you need to put on/remove the belt. I don't know how it goes with the standard kit, but the BBK kit comes with a belt thats not long enough. If its really hard to get the belt on dont squeeze it, you'll end up killing your tensioner pulley after a bit. Yeah, it should be snug, but you shouldn't have bruises from putting it on.

(I saw your other thread asking about plugs)
Plugs - there has been some debate. Supposedly the platinums are what it was designed to use, but Tom and Ray both would have you use the copper plugs. I have used both and they work just fine. Gap them lower than usual, say maybe .035 or .04 and go from there. You can gradually open them up until you get blow out, then back them down a tad. I think .04 is probably close to the norm.

As far as that support bracket goes, it should be two pieces. Refer to the instruction manual : http://www.ojengineering.com/Install...percharger.pdf
Page 2 - Illustration 2. You will see the support bracket...both pieces.

The alt mounting bracket....you have to get all of them lined up and the bolts started. Once you get them all threaded, you can go ahead and tighten them up.

x2 on clamping hoses. Clamp everything because hunting down vacuum leaks sucks, lol. I clamped everything and on the smaller lines I zip-tied the connections tightly with small zips.


Hope this helps

ooh ok thanks alot guys i came to some conclusions first of the alternator i do have the new mount and i finally figured out when i tightend up the top bolt it was sagging to far i didnt check to see if it weas high enough so i loosend it up and pulled it up to where it should be and alls good on that . the tensioner pully i will need to get a new bolt for it can i guess ill cehck at a hardware store and if not ill order one from moss motors, ill try the brake booster fitting again but i couldnt get it over the brass fitting last time but ill try it some more. other than that the belt is the only thing im worried about im sure its no big deal doing it but ive never messed with it before so im kinda nervous but then again i never done anything close to putting a s/c in and im almost done so hopefully i can do it. and the plugs is something ill think on do look at some more. anybody have any pics of the better way to run the vaccume lines? beacuse ive seen the writing on how to do it just no pics. but again thanks alot any more info would be GREATLY appreciated
