For those of you who upgraded the alternator, how exactly are you modding the upper bracket to get the belt to tension up on it?

Bump. Fresh pics of that GM set up would be great! Damn Photobucket concealed all the images.

I'm also curious if there's anything else you need to do when upgrading the alternator...like to the wiring or whatever?

It wouldn't hurt to run new cables, considering they're underbuilt and 30+ years old...
