i bought an 85 shelby charger a while back and i'm finaly getting the last bits together for it...

a buddy sent me the L-body alt tensioner (old style alt)... there is another bracket that i have that i think i understand goes on but it seems to be missing another peice that actualy bolts to the alternator...

am i right? anyone have pics of this peice? (if i'm right this peice should hook to the alternator... or possibly it's just a matter off i'm completly

the biggest help i could get is just some pics of exactly what it's all supposed to look like when its bolted together

thanks a lot guys

the tensioner bolts to the alt... two screws with rubber and really long bolt, then there is a bracket that stays put and when the tensioner is tight, you tighten a bolt though the bracket to the tensioner.

wow, that sounds confusing...

i gotta run out, but if no-one posts a pic while i'm gone, i will when i get back.

I hope helps you to know if you have all the parts and how they go together.:thumb:

If you need a close-up or different angle of a bracket, just lemme know.

I want to tell you this, too...

When the alt is in the car, it may look like a PITA to adjust. (Especially with A/C)
But you never even have to reach into the engine bay with a tool - there are access holes in core support for adjustments. One high, one low. I can post those for you also.

I just read that again....:bang head

This is how it bolts to the alternator, but the rubber on this one is messed up.

Here's another example with the factory screws shot at a better angle:
(rubber bad here too)

ahhh... I swear you said you had the old style alt....

ya'know, the Chrysler one...

but if you had the Bosch... I dunno...

what FSM do you have??

my FSM clearly shows the difference between the American one, the German one, and the Japanese one.

well, good luck anyway.
