    This alternator came with my Serpentine setup and there's about 1/8" clearance between the power lug and valve cover. I can work the boot on but it's really tight and I'd like to rotate the back shell to a different position. I don't have pictures now, car's at Thermo King getting A/C hoses installed. Anyone haved knowledge this?

    I would think so. If it comes apart you can re-clock. If the brushes pop out just use a paper clip straightened through the back and push the brushes back in the holder. There should be a small hole to slide it through. Probably a You Tube vid to watch on that.

    Should be able to clock it. Having a little more clearance there, in case of a collision, is really a good idea.

    No matter how much clearance you have there... You really should remove the battery ground connection before you ever touch the boot covering the power lug.

    Thanks guys, I have a quick disconnect on the ground side, always use it when working working on the alternator and other electrical components.

    Try not to open it more then 1/4 inch 1/8 is better , with the alt, sitting on it butt, and turn to the position required, you will need to pull off the fan,
