Just go to a salvage yard or junk yard and ask them to get a bolt from them in one of there cars of your make and model and year so they might just give it to you for free if they have your car there. Also autozone might help in telling you the bolt size too.

Hi, i can tell you its a metric size of about 8-10mm, if you go to the local mechanic they will probably have one in their spare nuts and bolts box and probably give it to you for free otherwise go to your local hardware and park your car close by, take your tools, they usually will let you exchange until you get the right one, stick to high tensile bolts. For the length, stick a thin screwdriver or similar into the hole and see how long it is, take into account the thickness of the bracket , make sure you get the right thread and start it off with your finger first, if it wont screw in with your finger than it may be the wrong thread. The other option is find a wrecker that has your vehicle and get one off them!!!

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Using a ½-inch-drive ratchet and the 19 mm socket, turn the center bolt on the crankshaft so that number-one cylinder piston is at top dead center (TDC). You will know you ware at TDC when the mark on the crank is in alignment with the arrow on the timing cover.
  • Disconnect the cruise control connector and remove the cruise control actuator. Loosen the upper mounting bolt with the 14 mm socket. Use a 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut then use a 10 mm socket to loosen the adjuster from the power steering pump and remove the belt.
  • Loosen the upper air conditioner mounting bolt using the 14 mm socket. Use the 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut and adjusting bolt on the alternator and remove the alternator/AC belt. Remove the valve cover using a 10 mm socket.
  • Place the jack behind the left front wheel where the arrow is located indicating the jack location, and raise the vehicle. Put the jack stand under the subframe behind the jack, then lower the jack. Remove the left front wheel for easy access to the crank pulley. Using a block of wood atop the jack, place the jack under the oil pan and lift with slight pressure to hold the engine in place. Remove the side engine mount using a 17 mm deep socket.
  • Take off the dipstick, pipe tube and upper timing cover using a 10 mm socket.
    Then remove the timing belt adjuster rubber seal without loosening the adjuster nut. Take off the crankshaft pulley bolt. Use the chain wrench to hold the the crankshaft pulley while turning the crankshaft pulley bolt with a 19 mm socket. Use the 10 mm wrench and 10 mm socket to remove the bolts on the lower cover. Remove the lower cover and mark the location of the cam, crank and balancer shaft with Liquid Paper. Remove the balancer shaft belt and timing belt. Install the timing belt and the balancer shaft belt in the reverse order of removing them. During Installation of the crank pulley, coat the threads of the crank pulley bolt with engine oil and tighten it to 159 foot-pounds. Finally, adjust the tension of the power steering and alternator belts as well.

    HOW DO I REMOVE A ALTERNATOR ON A 1987 CHEVY BLAZER


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
    1. Disconnect negative battery cable, then disconnect the positive cable from the battery.
    2. Disconnect and tag all wiring to the alternator. Fig. 1: Some of the alternator wiring is at a ring terminal located under a protective rubber boot on the rear of the alternator 85773154.jpg
      Fig. 2: A small box or open-end wrench may be used to loosen the wiring retaining nut 85773155.jpg
      Fig. 3: Squeeze the locktab and disengage the connector from the side of the alternator housing 85773156.jpg

    3. If necessary for removal clearance, disconnect the ground strap from the alternator bracket.
    4. If equipped, remove the alternator brace bolt.
    5. If the truck is equipped with power steering, it may be necessary to loosen the pump brace and mount nuts.
    6. Remove the lower mounting bolt, then support the alternator and remove the upper mounting/adjusting bolt.
    7. Slip the alternator belt from the pulley and remove the alternator from the truck. Fig. 4: Loosen the lower mounting bolt 85773159.jpg
      Fig. 5: The alternator uses a very long lower mounting bolt which passes through the alternator housing and a bushing before threading into the engine block 85773160.jpg
      Fig. 6: Support the alternator by hand and unthread the upper mounting/adjustment bolt 85773161.jpg

    8. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure that the bushing is in place when the lower mounting bolt is installed. Should the bolt be torqued without the bushing in position, alternator housing damage would likely occur.
    9. Adjust the belt(s) to have 1?4 - 1?2 inch depression under thumb pressure on its longest run. Fig. 7: Once the alternator is free, it may be lowered slightly so the belt may be removed from its pulley 85773162.jpg
      Fig. 8: Remove the alternator housing from the vehicle by lifting upward 85773163.jpg
      Fig. 9: During installation, carefully pry outward on the alternator in order to adjust the belt tension 85773164.jpg

    NEED INSTRUCTIONS ON REPLACING ALTERNATOR ON F150 FORD LARIET 1986.


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    See Figures 1 and 2


    0900c1528004b8db.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Rear terminal alternator


    0900c1528004b8dc.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: Side terminal alternator
    1. Open the hood and disconnect the battery ground cable.
    2. Remove the adjusting arm bolt.
    3. Remove the alternator through-bolt. Remove the drive belt from the alternator pulley and lower the alternator.

    Some engines are equipped with a ribbed, K-section belt and automatic tensioner. A special tool must be made to remove the tension from the tensioner arm. Loosen the idler pulley pivot and adjuster bolts before using the tool. See the accompanying illustration for tool details.
    1. Label all of the leads to the alternator so that you can install them correctly and disconnect the leads from the alternator.
    2. Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
    3. To install, reverse the above procedure. Torque the pivot bolt to 58 ft. lbs.; the adjusting bolt to 25 ft. lbs.; the wire terminal nuts to 60-90 inch lbs.

    BELT TENSION ADJUSTMENT

    The fan belt drives the alternator and water pump. If the belt is too loose, it will slip and the alternator will not be able to produce it rated current. Also, the water pump will not operate efficiently and the engine could overheat.
    Check the tension of the belt by pushing your thumb down on the longest span of the belt, midway between the pulleys. Belt deflection should be approximately 1 / 2 inch; (13mm).To adjust the belt tension, proceed as follows:
    1. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt and the adjusting arm bolts.
    2. Apply pressure on the alternator front housing only, moving the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt. Do not apply pressure to the rear of the cast aluminum housing of an alternator; damage to the housing could result.
    3. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt and the adjusting arm bolts when the correct tension is reached.

    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.
