Please help... the only thing i've come up with in the searches was that "yes, i have to remove this bracket". but after 45 minutes of futzing around i cant get the mofo off.
The alternator bracket needs to be removed to pull the last bolt of the rear valve cover. okay, how do i drop that bracket?? i've pulled the three bolts that i thought it was... do i have to pull the tensioner apart??
please help with any advice, experience, after this i can finishing ripping off the li manifold. ugh.
gonna go drop in my new plugs. be right back... thanks

the bracket is held on to the side of the cylinder head by three bolts. that means the tensioner comes off with it.

Take the bolt out of the center of the tensioner. I was afraid to do it, but it comes right off and goes back on with out a problem.

I wouldn't say it goes on without a problem. lol I wrestled with that stupid thing for too long. But yeah, I think it's actually 4 bolts total...the three you see, plus the tensioner itself.

yea, gotta haynes, doesnt do much good though. its all done and buttoned up nicely now.
last tensioner i popped off a mototr did just that "popped". hence the apprehension.. no big deal. just gonna remember that for 6 months from now when she :vomit: again.
