Re: Removing Alternator
A new person "Probe fan" responded to this thread but hit the report post button. Here's what Probe fan posted....
you may want to start by lifting the front end of your car as high as you can then you can get under the car and look up from there,
then yo uwill see a long bolt that goes through the alt dont touch that yet from the top of the engine you can see the tensioner bolt, start releasing that bolt and the belt should come loose enough to take it out
so take it out (loosen up every bolt comencted to the tensioner bolt)
take the belt out and then go back under the car and remove the first bolt I mentioned, then disconect all the electric connections and your alt should come right out
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
