Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

I have this bracket for the alternator but cannot figure out where the arm extension is to attach. There seems to be no obvious reason for having that extension. What am I missing?

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

69 SB Alternator support spacer bracket between Alternator and Passenger side (R) head.
Long bolt goes through the Alternator through the spacer and bolts to the head.
Tab bolts to the Alternator.
See detailed drawing on page 75 of the 1969 Camaro factory assembly instruction manual.

Okay... thank you... I thought it might be that. The alternator on the car is stamped #1100834, a dated '70 model off a typical small block. I wish I had the # 1100837 for the '69 Z, but they go for major bucks.
So unless I run upon a 837 alternator I will continue to wrap that arm up under the alternator.

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

1100834 should have the threaded boss on the back to accomadate the bracket. You must have the wrong rear case on the 834.

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

You can see in this pic pretty good where it goes. That is the only support for the rear of the alt.

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

Thanks for the photo Dennis. Either the rear of my alternator is incorrect, or my spacer with the arm is incorrect. My spacer's arm has a span of 3.5" between the center bore and the arm's mounting hole. I suspect the arm. Who out there has one you can measure for me?

Many thanks! This tells me that I need the correct bracket spacer tube with the 2.62 distance arm. I don't remember where I got this one, it may have been eBay, if so it was misrepresented.
Is there any stamping or ID on your part? The bracket in my photo above isn't actually the one on the car, that part photo was found on eBay and it is still available. Maybe I will buy it.....

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

My alternator does have the mounting hole on the back, and it measures ~ 2.6" center-to-center between the holes. With your help I now know the problem is in the bracket and if I play my cards right I will buy the one off of eBay in a few days.

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

Well I won the eBay auction. A little sand blasting and painting and I'll be putting the correct bracket on the Camaro. Thanks for all your help.

Re: Alternator Bracket ?? - '69 Camaro

I have sand blasted, primed, and painted the eBay purchased bracket and today braved the cold garage and installed it. Thanks for your help guys, below is a photo.

I have also included a photo of the old bracket with a span of 3-5/8" on the arm and it has "AAC" stamped on it. What would this have come off of? If I can identify it I will sell it on eBay.

Thanks,
Andrew
