There be two different "stock" brackets..Today I tried adapting the stock aluminum bracket to work with the GM 105 amp alternator that I had. It is from Autozone - a Duralast 1532-6-7 with the 10 o'clock mounting that I've used previously in my GT and Manta with the F bracket. Upon completing the shim swap and some grinding I discovered that the cooling fan on the alternator will not clear the bracket.
The alternator used by the OP is different and does not have the clearance issues that I had. Looks like it's back to the F bracket for me.:sad:
One is aluminum the other aint.
