sweet.....how you liking them L7s so far
I would try using a larger ratchet on the bottom bolt for more leverage...or a breaker bar if worst comes to worst.ok i finally got access to a shop and i got the AC bracket off and the top two bolts on the Alternator off but i couldnt get the bottom ones off.
Also i was thinking about how i could do it without taking the alternator off and going around the PCM. What if I just took the PCM off the mounts?
Where is the alt case ground located? I'm so sorry for the complete noob question but I just cannot reach the factory engine block ground and I don't have much knowledge on our engine bay and stuff.It really wouldn't matter much, the alt case is attached to the engine block going to the chassis, so you can if you want to, just make sure they are grounded in the same spot.
I will have to check that out as well. I couldn't go out and look at all today because my dad was using my car all day. I may end up removing the alt to do it too.Where is the alt case ground located?

I ground the alt case using the top/rear alt mounting bolt..iirc a 5/16" eyelet will fit
I also don't know how to get to the positive on the alternator. I don't have a long enough extension for my socket wrench to provide any leverage at all. I don't know how I will do the battery positive to alternator positive part of the big 3 at all.
I have to remove the alt to do it, I don't have the skills
I honestly feel dumb for asking but I just want to get the big 3 done whenever I can.
It's better to ask and do it right
This is probably what I will do too.I didn't do the engine block
Batt - to alt case
Batt - to frame
Batt + to alt +
You will need a plumbers torch to get it hot enough, using 0 to 2ga.I want to solder the wires to the terminals too. Do you think a regular radio shack 30 watt soldering iron should do the job?
Oh. I'm trying to look at your pic but it won't enlarge so I can't really tell much other than a wire connected to a ring terminal with some stuff in the background. Have you done the battery to alt already? If you did about how long did it take you to do?You will need a plumbers torch to get it hot enough, using 0 to 2ga.
Hmmm... Need some help I want to paste a pic from a previous post I put up. How do I do it?
Anyways the pic is in post 66 of this thread, take a look.
