Alternator adjuster bolt with gear sprocket
I'm working on this 1978 280E Alternator and there is a special bolt for adjusting the belt tension on the alternator. The gear/sprocket on one end of the bolt is stripped and trashed. Are these bolts available or do I have to go search a junk yard for a good one?
None of the alternator bolts have washers either. The pivot bolt has lots of slop too. Either the aftermarket alternator pivot hole is too big or there should be some bushings on the bolt. Anyone have a exploded view of the alternator and its hardware and bracket?
