Thanks man.....

I was on my way back home from Texas when this happened. I noticed about 10:30 last night. I'm glad I stopped for food otherwise I'm afraid I'd be stuck on the side of the road in the middle of no where....

If you are close to Walmart You could go over and get a 1/2" ratchet I think that is all you need to release the tensioner for the surp belt. It may be 3/8 but if you check it that will be redily apparent I would think. Do you have tool to remove the alt?

GoFast beat me to it. All you need is right next door except an alternator. Good luck!

I wish I could help you bud. Do you not have a check card? If your wife has it she can call the parts house and pay for the alt over the phone. Just a thought. and another bump
