    Default alternator bracket for a 4pt motor mount rail kit

    The typical spot for the alternator wont work any more with the 4ptmotor rail kit, compared to 3pt system. What are my options ? Where to mount? Special bracket??
    pics might help as well.

    Thanks much for your assistance.

    most of the time they're mounted to the front plate with a bolt and spacer, and then a little heim joint and turnbuckle is used to keep tension.

    I've got one of Duanes from HTP on mine, mounts on the passenger head and has the optional tensioning arm. High quality piece for sure. Check out his site and see if it might work for you.

    I used the turnbuckle as well.. went to the upper water pump block-off bolt. with my dampener v pulley setup i was able to bolt the alt. directly to the engine plate.
