alternator prob - broken stud

Motor is a TB42 NA

went driving to canb to nowra via the nerriga road yesterday

unfort the limestone ripple dirt roads have shaken out my bottom alternator mounting bolt

can anyone tell me what size bolt it is that I need to replace it with etc....

the alternator is working, but there is obviously some slack in the belts, so I need to secure it off pretty quickly.

better still, if someone has a suitable and spare bolt let me know

thanks in adv

try giving nissan a call and ask them. if theyre no help because its a mounting bolt and assuming its not a special bolt could you just measure the thread roughly and ask your fastener shop?

alternator problem - broken stud

managed to get off the alternator and discovered that one bolt has snapped off. not enough left to get a purchase on it to get it out.

is the lower alternator bracket (2 bolts) removable from the block? I can't tell whether its removable. (too damn dark to see the rest of it)

if it is, and anyone has one to let go of then I'm happy to buy it

the gregory, haynes and nissan manuals don't give any detail on the bracket at all, so need advice from someone who's actually pulled one of these blocks apart/out
