you need to unbolt the alternator from the stock mounting bracket you have attached. The tensioner is attached to the stock bracket by 2 bolts; it bolts onto the new bracket with 2 bolts (i got a new tensioner while I was in there).

the idler pulley is removed from the new bracket for instillation IIRC. the alternator has one bolt that goes right through and attaches it to the new bracket. the other end of the alternator is supported by the curved black bracket on the right side of your picture; this bracket has spacers to hold it in on the alternator side and is bolted to the blower.

Thanks this really helped alot. I got the bracket with the two pulleys mounted and the alternator mounted to the bracket. now where does the straight bracket and the short bracket go? And of coarse now I notice that im missing the two spacers that hold the curved bracket on. I guess I will need to purchase those.

those go under the supercharger manifold, the curved j looking on goes next to the oil filter and the long straight one connects to it and to the bottom of the manifold.


look at illustration #12

I think he means the curved alternator bracket and spacers for it. The big end attaches to the alt and the small end attaches to the snout of the blower. Mine was missing the spacers when I got it too.

Check Illustration 5&6

I used washers for those; I could only get the smaller spacer from moss iirc. Its a bit of a pita to get them all in there properly but i did get it and it holds nice and snug.

Thanks for the help guys. I got the small and straight bracket on, now I just need to rig something up so I don't have to buy the spacers.
