There are 3 bolt holes on the triangle bracket. The bracket should be oriented where there's a hole close to the thermostat housing lining up with a hole in the head, one towards the motor mount and one hole towards the fender lined up with a 2nd head hole.
a. Install a long bolt, threads facing the radiator thru the bottom hole (towards motor mount) of the bracket.
b. Then install the bracket to cylinder head and secure with a bolt into the hole closet to the thermostat housing.
c. Then install a long spacer--slide onto the long bolt (a).
d. Then, tricky part: install front plate using bolt (a) & nut to hold it in place loosely, position the 2nd long spacer on the triangle bracket's 3rd hole (closest to the fender) WHILE inserting a long bolt thru the front plate, thru that spacer, thru the triangle bracket into the cylinder head.
That order is bolt --> front plate-->spacer-->triangle bracket-->cylinder head.
e. tighten the 2 bolts & nut. The nut may spin its bolt, so I use a flat screwdriver to hold the bolt head side in place from spinning.
Now for the alternator:
Hole towards the fender is simple, square ear of alt against the front plate via bolt. BUT add a washer between the ear and front plate, that optimizes the belt angle!
The other alt hole uses a short spacer and order is
bolt-->front plate --> spacer --> alt round ear --> engine mount bracket (od 1/2" wide strip metal piece --> nut)
YOU WILL NEED to clock the alternator so the 1-wire points toward the thermostat housing.
