Hello all, i am new to this forum so bear with me, and direct me in the right location if this topic has already been brought up!! I just replaced my stock 85 amp alternator for a huge 200 amp chrome alternator. well my problem is, to get the belt off, i had to pull of the whole alternator and it slipped right off. now i need to get it back on!! :roll: can anyone tell me where i can find the belt tensioner for the alternator? i have looked but cant find it? if you can send a pick or a "how to" that would be greatly appreciated!! thanks in advance for any help!!

Take a look at this diag.
Put a good size socket or a breaker on the bolt of pulley/tensioner #3 (in pic). I think it is 14mm. You're going to want to have the wrench handle like it is in the pic; in the 2 o'clock position. Turn clockwise, but you're not actually tightening the nut as much as releasing the tension on the arm as you force it down. You'll see whay I'm talking about when you get in there.
