    Flat idler has nothing to do with the alternator, you have to use it for the bracket to work there in no other option. Grinding the alternator has to do with belt alighnment i guess. I did not have a problem with that.

    Oh lord!
    You grind the alternator because the idler pulley will make contact with it if you dont!

    Hey, Dave what idler pulley did you use? I'm pretty sure I've got the same brackets as you.

    Oh Lord So much grinding so little time. The only thing me and dave(I belive) had to grind was some material of the alternator bracket because it was rubbing on the water pump pulley. I dont know if terry fixed that on his new brackets.

    that is correct, 2 mins with the belt sander ans it was good to go. i did tell Terry about it when i first ran into the problem and sent him pics so hopefully he corrects the next brackets he makes.

    I think the issue was that on his set up I belive the lip on the waterpump pulley was removed, ours still had the lip so that rubs the bracket. No lip on the pulley would make it so you could chane the belt without taking the alterntor bracket off.

    XR3Z-8678-BA theres the number Dave is correct its the width of six ribs but the pulley is not ribed, its flat, hence the name flat idler
