Alternator Problems

Recommended Posts

We have a B67 that we converted to 12v and replaced the generator with an alternator, but the alternator keeps breaking the ear off that the long bolt goes through in the bottom of alternater . Everything it tight and belts are straight, does anybody have any idea what the problem could be ? Bracket not strong enough ? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I think gearhead has you pointed in the right direction. If the alternator has a SAE J-180 mount, two bottom legs and one top bolt. It is important there is movement in the bottom bushing (bottom leg farthest from fan).

When installing or adjusting always tighten it last.

Pics would help though, in case you have something different.
