8. Now that you have all of the nuts and bolts removed or loosened you can lift the old alternator out. Pull it straight up. You may want to see if you can get a friend to hold the spark plug wires out of the way or you can just zip tie them out of the way.
9. Take your new alternator and put it back into position. This is where leaving the 2 bottom blots in will help you out. The alternator has channels cut into it so it can just slide over the bottom bolts.
10. To maintain your PA alternators warranty you will have to replace the power feed wire with one that is at least a 4 gauge wire. American Muscle sells this as well (part # 95311). It already has all of the connections and fuse in place. All you have to do is hook the end closest to the in line fuse to the fuse box on the driver’s side of the car. Use your 10mm wrench. Then hook the other end to the threaded stud on the alternator itself. Be sure to secure the wire away from the belt. You do not have to remove the old wire from the harness. Plug in the connector you unplugged earlier.
11. Now install the alternator bracket back on the top of the alternator. Set it in place then tighten the bolts first and then tighten the nuts. Put the spark plug wires back into the holders as well.
12. Tighten the bottom 2 bolts on the alternator.
13. Using the 1/2” drive ratchet, reinstall the belt.
14. After you have double checked your work reconnect the battery.
15. Start your car up and enjoy more electrical power!
