    How do you get it tight. I know that you undo the two bolts, have someone push the aternator but I cant get it tight enough. Is there some kind of tool that people use? The ps and ac have the tentioner so that is easy but I cant get the alternator right. Any tips?

    i use my breaker bar
    loosen the alt bolts, wedge the breaker bar between the alt and the block, then pry that shit, have somone else tighten the belts while you pry
