What size bolts are needed for the 1998 Isuzu rodeo v6 3.2 alternator and tension-er pulley to mount them.

you lost the bolts, that it? wow.... that be a pain on old cars and for sure the bugged out isuzu company.. cars.... in USA.

so your isuzu dealer gone,. most are.! here.
so now need lost parts lacking the real parts list on car.
you only have 2 choices, buy them from online Isuzu
or measure them.
lets do 1 first.

it dont show many bolts.

way 2, that always works titled shop skills 101, measurements.

rule 1, it's metric, 8mm or 10m is my guess. M8 selves.
so what to do.?
well take a swizzle stick, and jam it in to the hole.
till it bottoms out. this finds DEPTH.
mark that point using thumb nail, of hand.
then move stick to a metric ruler,
now you know max depth in MM
the bolt will be tad less. (must be)
so buy some bolts at the store, in that lenght, in the 8 and 10mm bin.
take them home, one will fit. one 8 and one M10
wash and repeat for every bolt on car.
do not use ACE hardware bolts, use high grade bolts from autostores. in the generic isle with vast selections.
if 8 wont fit the hole, its 6mm

One air craft crashed from this , skill set 101 guy who
used the wrong windshield bolts. sad fella. that.
at 30,000 the windshield blew out with pilot.
he used 1 size too small.
in england... this.... the made a movie about him.
Here we have certified air frame mechanics, that would never do that. ever.
take a class in auto basics , under how to pick bolts
on sizes and grade.

The bolt on the bottom of my alternator fell and is lost, i have to know the size of it to replace, anyone know the answer?

Use one of the other alternator bolts for testing, see if the threads are the same on the other bolt hole. If the bolt is a little long or short, just get a different length bolt from the hardware store.

If nothing else, use a tap and die set. If enough meat around the hole, drill the hole and retap the threads. Just a thought.

You didn't give year--make--model?

Alternator location on a 2010Toyota tundra

if you open the hood standing in the middle of truck, facing towards the windshield, split the motor in half, the alternator should be left of center of motor, it is round, it has a pulley it may have 1 or 2 belts or 1 serpentine belt, if it is a serpentine belt you are going to need a tool call serpentine belt tool kit, long bar with a socket on the bar, set of different sizes of sockets to fit the spring load device that hold the serpentine belt in place. on top of alternator is a wire connector with 2-3 wires that connect to the starter and battery, and bolt with connector for ground that is bolted on the back side of alternator, 2-3 bolts that hold the alternator in place, remove bolts, take it auto parts store have them test it before buying a new one.

Alternator bolt size

the head size for socket size or actual bolt spec.?
you lost the bolt (not stated) or just want to unscrew it?

I'll'' guess at lost.
its metric.
and is 6mm or 8mm ? in size. (i bet 8)
buy some 6 and 8s in the store and see if one fits.
if one fits , you now know the diameter in mm and the pitch.
now buy the correct length (use a ruler)

I have a 2000 suzuki vitara it is the same as a tracker i lost the bolt for the crank pulley i need to know what size the bolt is

They can't tell you what size the bolt is because it is specially made for that purpose. The bolt is made to keep the crankshaft in balance and made of extra strong steel.
I doubt you could substitute something else.
You might try a salvage yard or a place that rebuilds engines.

Bolts for the alternator

Go the auto parts store and they can either pull it up or they can let you use a thread gauge to tell you the threads and size.
