1. Disconnect the battery negative cable.
2. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
3. Remove the drive belt.
4. Disconnect the regulator electrical connector.
5. Remove the generator front mounting bolts.
6. Remove the generator rear mounting bolt.
7. Remove the generator output (BAT) terminal nut.
8. Remove the generator.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

1. Position the generator on the vehicle.

NOTE : Refer to Fastener Notice in Cautions and Notices.

2. Loosely install the mounting bolts.
3. Install the generator output (BAT) lead.
4. Loosely install the generator output (BAT) nut.

Tighten

* Tighten the mounting bolts to 50 N.M (37 lb ft).
* Tighten the generator output (BAT) terminal nut to 20 N.M (15 lb ft).

5. Connect the regulator electrical connector.
6. Install the drive belt.
7. Install the air cleaner.
8. Connect the battery negative cable.
That should do the trick.
