FYI - I'm going to update that alternator relocation page. The threaded
rod design I outlined on that page worked perfectly for over 10 years.
Then I started racing the car. I've broken the threaded rod twice in
the last several months autocrossing. I've since altered the design so
that I'm using a 3/8th 3 inch bolt through the mount and a 3-1/2 inch
long bolt through the alternator joined at the center by a threaded
coupling. All of that stuff is available at lowes. This seems to work
better at high RPM but I'm still watching it before I settle on this
being the "solution". If you're not racing the car, the threaded rod
ought to work fine, it lasted me 10 years.
