Hello. I'm new here.

I'm replacing the LIM on my 2001 3.4 Impala. I'm mostly done, but I'm having a problem with, of all things, the alternator.

I got the mounting bolts mixed up.

There are 4 bolts, 3 normal ones of 3 different lengths, 1 with a shorter/thinner head and a blunt tip.

I used the blunt tip to mount the cast aluminum bracket to the head on the back side of the engine.

I used the long normal bolt on the left rear to attach the alt to the bracket.

I used the short normal bolt on the right rear to attach the alt to the bracket.

I used the medium normal bolt at the front of the alt at the pivot point, but there are no threads there.

Did I misplace a nut to secure the bolt at the pivot point, or have I got this install all screwed up?

Any help, especially a close up picture of the bolt at the pivot would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Rob

IIRC, there should be 2 that are the same length, they go in the back of the alternator, then the long one goes in under tha ALT, with a nut on it at the back of the ALT. the 4th one (the shortest one?) goes in toward the top/front of the alt and threads into a support bracket..

I could be wrong .. if so hopefully someone will chime in. I just had mine off a week or so ago but its not here to look at right now.

Thanks Bio. I figured it out tonight. There is a bracket on the stud on the UIM. The blunt tipped bolt goes into that bracket. When I posted the question the UIM and the bracket were still on the garage floor. Once all the pieces were there it made more sense.
