  Depends on the alternator and bracket you have.  Motorolas pretty much 
have the fan, a washer and the pulley boom, boom, boom then the nut.  The 
Bosch have a spacer that's almost 2" long.  (On the ones I've seen, actually 
never have seen a Bosch alt on that age of Rabbit.  Got one by accident 
and had to send it back.)  Something like that anyway.  I know the offsests 
are different!  ;-)  My Rabbit's not where I can run out and look at it.  :-P

  Most don't come with pulleys.  Don't think I've ever bought one that had 
one with it.
