    Re: Blados = Things looky sketchy.

    i've owned probably 6 gm vehicles. none of them used 4 bolts. 2 bolts holding the alt and some had a support bar on the back. but never 4 bolts. sounds like you're making up excuses just to get your money back.

    LOL. This most certainly uses 4 bolts. What do you think a support bar is for? Maybe you're supposed to stick a bolt in there? Der der der.

    After thinking it over and reading a few posts, here's what I'm going to do. I'll take it up to a shop around here that does some custom work and see if I can get this fixed easily. As stated in my last post, I would like to keep this alternator because it's very difficult finding one that fits. I'm easy to work with, so I'll put the claim on hold, for now

    the support bar he was talking about is the back side of the mounting flange
    bolts go through the front flange
    through the alt mounting ears
    into the rear flange to actually tighten down

    how bout pics of the alt you bought
    plus some pics of this mystery alt

    not saying GM has never used 4 bolts
    but
    they have never used 4 bolts on 95-99 tahoe, yukon, s10, sonoma, etc....

    did you find a different one you like better or something

    He posted pics of the alt he sold me on the first page. Take a look. I don't think there are many better alts out there than one that does 165 amps at idle and 220 at 2k rpms, are there? Do me a favor, take out the front two bolts on a yukon or tahoe and tell me if you can get the alternator out. You'll find that you need to remove the 2 in the back for the alternator to come out.

    *Edit* Since you edited, I will too. I know where the bolts go. All 4 of them. But whatever, I'll see if I can get an easy fix on it.

    dont have the tahoe anymore
    but there is a build log

    there are 2 bolts approx 4 inches long that go thru the front into the rear
    there was no other bolts

    pulled those 2 out
    stuck a screwdriver under 1 side and it popped right out
    push the spacers back slide the new one in
    bolts thru and tighten
    put the belt on

    took about 10 minutes

    no need since they dont use 4
    unless you are trying to take the case apart

    or possibly someone fucked your truck up before you bought it
    on GM the bolts go front to rear no other way
    nothing rear to front

    unless you have a side mounted engine in that case they would go
    pass to driver

    for whatever reason you dont want the alt now after a month its yours
    sell it

    Is the engine stock? I had this happen to a friend once, he bought a truck that didnt have the same engine the trucks came out with stock. Man, he had so much trouble finding parts for it since he couldnt ask for them by year and make.

    im fairly certain there are only 2. are you going by what you've experienced, or by what your "mechanic" told you?
