Alternator Bolt
#1
Can someone clue me in on what I'm cutting through. Tried PB blaster several times over a few days tapping with a hammer, cheater bar would budge it and impact wrench won't move it. I've grinded the head most the way off just wondering if this is a bolt with a washer or one of those bolts with the washer fixed to it?

Any tips once it comes apart getting it out of the block. Would be a nightmare if it broke off in there.

Thanks

It is a bolt with washer, and is probably seized where it goes through the alternator and not in the block.

Thanks Don. Wanted to spare the bracket as much as I could. It looks like it just may be in the alt. May have to cut it off back there too.

Use a hand torch and heat it, let it cool, and repeat until it comes loose

Looks like you've got 'er licked, Cole. Had to remove my alternator today to reinstall the dipstick tube, and was thinking good thoughts for you the whole 46 seconds it took to remove it. Big Grin

Seriously, good job on being patient with that mother. If nothing else, I've learned a lot about patience and thinking while working on this convertible. Or maybe it's just "putting it off until I'm in a better mood to deal with it." Smile

Either way, I think this whole project has been good for both me, and the convertible. 'Nuff said.

Keep at it, 'Bro. And keep posting up.

Thanks Doc. I'm going to take the old spacer into work today. I think we have some galvanized pipe about that size. I'll grab a piece and run it by Newt's Exhaust and welding and borrow his chop saw. Got me a killer Stainless steel bolt for the swivel mount and should have a zinc coated long one at work. I'm a 46 second man next time around baby!! Uggghh that didn't sound quite right.
