Question about 1985 Ford F350
My online resource didn't mention a 'long bolt' but if it does hit the radiator, the next step is to drain the radiator and remove it before taking out the alternator (or lift the engine out to clear the radiator but that's more difficult):
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
