Easy removal of the Tii alternator
When removing the tii alternator from the bottom, disconnect the sway bar end links and remove the (4) hold down bolts to move the bar forward enough to allow the alternator (with pulley) to drop out of the engine compartment. Also, if you remove the (4) bolts that hold the radiator to the bulkhead – then shift it over about 1″ toward the passenger side, the long pivot bolt can be removed from the upper alternator mount (without draining the coolant!). I must admit, replacing the v-belt is tough; it is VERY tight between the fan and radiator.
