factory product the top mount hole in the altenator was threaded. so no nut required.
the replacement was not threaded requiring a second trip to town to by a longer bolt/washers and a nut. this made for a extra 30 mile round trip. at 13 miles to a gallon. and fastner cost increased overall price by 8 dollars. would rather see hardware in the box for 2 more dollars. instead of delays and additional cost.

Failed within a week & put us in a bind

Appreciate the help of the local Advance Auto store to order a "new" alternator for the out of town replacement.

      First one didn't work. Had to take it out, return it for another, and install it again.... I guess that is what happens when you buy reconditioned.
