ok..the alternator is in..its a good thing my bolts
were all rusted to or else it might have come out a

thank you. i bought the car about a month ago and
everything started breaking down on it so i'm gonna be

car. next up is the throwout bearing then the power
steering hoses and then trying to get the instrument
panel to function properly.
