Re: alternator

Bracket!?!? Surp system or individuals? The only one I can think would connect to the exhaust manifold to the back of the alternator.

Re: alternator

Serpentine there's 2 brackets. 1 goes to the front driver's side manifold bolt in front of the power steering brace, and the other goes from the back of the alternator to the top of the intake manifold just behind the coolant neck.

V belt, I haven't got a clue...

Re: alternator

You've got an 87, its V Belt accessories.

305, 350 are the same.
In 88 they changed to a serpentine belt system.

I think this might help...
