Place the bolt through the top bracket. Slide spacer "B" onto bolt. Slide bolt through rear bracket, then spacer "A" and thread into cylinder head as shown in the complete photo. Install remaining three bolts and spacers and finger tighten. Place alternator between brackets and install the two 80mm bolts using stainless washers on both outer sides of the billet brackets.
