The alternator should be top left, not top right. Top right would be for the A/C pump. Belts go like this. Innermost crank pully to power steering. Next pully out on crank goes over the fan and the alternator. Get a throttle cable bracket for a 1982 Camero. That year the engine was carburated. You can also use parts from a Firebird but not a TransAm in those years.
check signal relay on fuse panel, or just buy new one. Low cost and quickest way to find out if it's more of a costly prob. Newest Ford I have is a 94, fuse panel cover is on driver side above left knee. Once opened, bottom right of panel, you will see a sorta round 3 liter looking soda cap,
this is for a 3.8 v6. first Disconnect the battery. then take off the Radiator cap and set it aside. on driver side at the bottom of the Radiator. there a twist valve. this is the coolant drain. put a large container under drain then open the valve. once it stops. on the passenger side towards the back in front of the belt tensioner but under the altenator is the water pump. but to get to it you have to take off the mounting bolts for the altenator (LEAVE ALL WIRES CONNECTED this will save time) now set it aside. now loosen the 4 bolts on the water pump pully. now take the drive belt off. take a pully puller and take the pully off the power steering. there should be a metal support going from the back of the a/c compresser to the water pump. undo the 2 bolts hold the bracket on the a/c compressor.(on a side note do not loose any of the bolts cause ford dont carry them anymore and hardware stores dont have them. only place i found is a junkyard) detach the hoses on the water pump. (Caution there will be some coolant left have container ready)l
now loosen the bolts on water pump. now under the car near the front right there are to engine mounts LOOSEN THEM ONLY ENOUGH TO RAISE THE ENGINE ENOUGH TO CLEAR. using a jack. raise only the passenger side of the engine enough for the water pump to clear the wheel well. once that is done undo the bolts on the water pump pully and take off and pull off the water pump and take off the support bracket and pull off the water pump. clean off leftover residue on the engine black. now put the silicon gel/paste on both sides of the new gasket. use a decent amount but not too much. then wipe off edges. and put the water pump back as shown below.
attach the hoses. now put the support bracket back on then tighten the bolts down only a little and let the silicon set overnight for best leak protection. (by doing this. it allows the sillicon to create a good strong seal) after it set overnight tighten down the bolts. put the water pump pully back on put on the bolts hand tight . lower the jack SLOWLY! now retorque the enigine mounts to 70lbs i believe. put the 2 bolts for the a/c compressor back in. put the power steering pully back on. (MAKE sure you aline the pully up with the others or it will throw the belt) rebolt on the altenator. put the belt back on and refil the cooling system with coolant. reconnect the battery. start the engine for 30 sec then turn off check for leaks and top off coolant then then fill the rezivor to proper level. restart engine and run till operating temp then check for leaks
Below the altenator is a tensioning pully, insert a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar in the square hole on the tensioner and release the tension on the surpentine belt and remove the belt. Route the new surpentine belt in place up to the altenator and take the tension off the tensioner and put the belt over the altenator pully. Double check to make sure the belt is riding correctly on all the pullies before starting. Crank the engine over several times before starting to seat the belt.
disconnect the negative battery. remove the belt by rotate the tensioner roller clockwise. from the left car side u will see three hexagon screw 13mm under the altenator. loose out the screw and remove the altenator. before that unplug the two wire behind the altenator.tq
If the belt won't move, the schreech is probably coming from the crank pully. Take the belt off and see what pully will not move by turning them by hand. Either the altenator, power steering, A/C compessor, Tensioner, or idler pully is frozen up. you should be able to turn all of them by hand. Replace which ever one doesnot move.
first remove your negative battery cable remove your serpentine belt by taking a 1/2in. drive ratchet to your belt tensioner. then remove the three bolts holding your alternator in place then unplug the wires connected to it, and you are ready to install the new one
