SOURCE: Changing alternator belt in 1977 Delta 88

On the older cars, the alternator was attached by two mounting bolts. The long bolt goes through the alternator and is held on by a hex nut. The short bolt goes through a slotted curved piece into the alternator and is used for adjusting tension on the belt.

Depending on the location of the alternator, it may require you to work from the top of the engine or in some cases from under the car. Determine if any other belt is blocking the alternator belt. If so, this belt will have to be removed first to access the alternator belt.

Use a little penetrating fluid (e.g. PB Blaster) on the threads of both bolts and let it soak in to loosen up any corrosion. Using two wrenches/sockets(one to hold and one to loosen), loosen the long pivot mounting bolt; but do not remove. Then use a wrench or socket to loosen the short bolt and push the alternator towards the engine to allow the belt to be removed.

Installation is the reverse. You will have to lift the alternator up and outward to tighten the belt prior to tightening the short bolt. Then tighten the long bolt. Check tension by pressing down on the midpoint along the longest span between pulleys. Belt should not deflect more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch. If it does, loosen the two bolts and re-tension (you may need a pry bar for adjustment). Some setups use an idler pulley for adjusting tension.

remove the mount from it. The lower mounts will keep the engine in place. The upper mount is a stablelizer to keep the engine in check when high torque to the engine is created while driving

I have a 1987 Olds. Delta 88 and I have (2) questions: Drivers side window will not go up or down, possible motor problem? Seat belt light does not go off


There is a sensor in the belt buckle that wears out over time and also gets dirty. Try cleaning the buckle if that does not work replace the sensor. Does the drivers window not roll down and that is what makes you think it has no power? Take the door pannel off and have someone push the window button while you test to see if it gets power from a volt meter. If it does then the motor is bad.
