You are talking about the long bolts right?

They break super easy if you dont caress them gently before removing.

PB blaster soaked for a day does wonders.

Ideally an impact gun and/or oxyacetylene torch.

thats not a reason to sell a car, unless is for finantial situation than its fine. but just because its giving you shit its a stupid idea to sell it. all the people that are into cars have gone trough this, and i tell you wat. once its running the way it should itll make you feel so much better about your self. but than again its just me. and thats why forums are here to help you with things that you might not now.

well its not just that one thing, theres a lot of reasons to sell. but anyway, i got a closer look at the stud and it doesnt look broken like the other one, it goes into the alternator like its broken but i can pull it out as far as it will go and its tight again like before. what do you all think of this?
