Are they using sub-par japanese metal to make easy-outs these days??? Also, whoever owned my Blazer before me had to have been a real idiot. Heres the story. Today the bottom bolt on my alternator broke and spun upside down ruining my ground cable. Got a new ground cable and just happened to have another bolt just like it. So I go to change it... and realize there is no spacer bracket on my alternator. My guess is whoever went to buy the new alternator didnt take off the bracket and turned it in with the core then later noticed his mistake and used only the bolt. Anyway i had a spare bracket too /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif but while trying to get the broken bolt out i busted off an easyout... I got a spare head also probably need to change that but what you all think i shall do?
