alternator removal?

Recommended Posts

indmar monsoon 340 2008 - this seems silly but was just trying to remove the alternator and realized on the top bolt has the slide through bolt coupling or sleeve and can't pull the Alt off completely because this sleeve is stuck in between the alternator bracket that is mounted to the engine block.  Is this sleeve/coupling suppose to just slip or fall out after the bolt is removed?  The sleeve is sticking out past the Alt bracket about 1/8th of an inch which is just enough to not have any give to remove the Alt itself.  It's not even enough to get some plyers on either and pull it out.  I can post picks if need be?

never mind I was able to remove the Alt by rotating back and forth and putting some pressure on the back side of the alternator, it finally slipped out of the engine bracket mounts.  This little coupling that is about 1" long was seized in there.  slapped some PB on it and channel locks and finally pulled it out.
