You guys should go back a few posts and read. There is absolutely no need to grind anything. The alternator bosses have pressed in inserts that you simply tap on with hammer to open them up to fall right on bracket, the bolts then pull them back tight around bracket when bolt tightened get alt loose quick, work at it with crowbar strategically placed to force the inserts open and alt falls right out. With insert knocked out there is easily 1/8th inch looseness there.
