Alternator tensioner

Post by vw1970 » Sun Jan 10, 2021 8:13 pm

I was just trying to find a slick kit or way to delete the stock power steering bracket that also act as the alternator tensioner and was kind of surprised when i couldn't find anything..

So i decided to make my own. Let me know if anyone has a need for one of these. Not trying to get rich off of these at $20 a set. This is an ej257 block and ej205 alternator. Not sure what other models it will fit but I'm pretty certain it should fit the gambit of engine codes/alternators.
Will come with the link pictured, two spacers and two bolts. You'll only need the appropriate belt

There is a retail solution in case anyone doesn't have access to fabrication tools:
