Re: alternator for 1.6 16 valve out of tracker
I realize that my setup is a bit different in that I had the pulleys on my 1.6 8-v modified for a v-belt 1.3 samurai A/C pump, but to me it sounds like somebody isn't holding their mouth right during the installation...
Check for possible mounting problems, like a bent bracket, improperly seated bracket (there may be a bit of slop between the mounting hole and the stud or bolt at the block that is causing a positioning problem) or an extra/missing spacer washer that is causing alignment problems.
Usually things either bolt right up on the g13 or 16 blocks or they don't.
Guys: wasn't there a major design change between the 95 and 96?
