Having trouble with finding correct bolts for mounting generator. I purchased a parts catalog and the bolt #'s in the assembly manual are not listed in the catalog.

RD, you are going to have to help us out a little.

For starters (no pun intended) please give us the year, make, model and engine description. Then more detail such as what the bolts attach to. And, what often helps is a photograph or two.

Regards,

Don

62 Impala 327 300hp used an alternator, not a generator. Two different type mountings for the generator vs. alternator. A 3rd type was the 62 amp alternator, which used a cast iron mounting bracket. It is important to use current day terms when describing a part. In 1962 GM did refer to this as a generator, however, later on they described it as an alternator. If you went into the auto parts store and asked for a 1962 generator, you would get a generator, not an alternator. Now, specifically, what do you have?

Junky, my late Dec. 1961 impala 327/300hp motor came with and still has the OE generator.

Weren't all alternators optional in 1962?

What is the part number and date code stamped into the Delco ID tag??

Its been my understanding that there was a roughly mid year change over from a generator to an altenator for 1962 and that this altenator continued to be called a generator. The exact timing of the changeover varied among plants.

To clear up the '62 alternator debate, The alternator (or AC generator, as Chevy called it) was optional with any engine except the 409. It was included as standard equipment with all engines when ordered with Air Conditioning.

Very interesting. Was the name "AC" for alternating current or "AC" for air conditioning in the name for "AC generator"?

Electrical. AC vs DC.

Even a nitwit will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time he will pick himself up and carry on as if nothing happened.

I will check, my father says it's a generator. It has a a metal bracket that it bolts to.

The first few digits are not very legible, but the last four are 2097. I think it may be 7302097.

The 097 is the std generator.

Unfortunately, I do not have any good photos of the original bolts. I neglected to document them when I put mine together recently. One of the nuts is a swagged lock nut that doesn't use a lock washer. I'll have to check around and see if I have any extras.

As far as the bushings. There is only 1?

The rubber bushing is on the front end frame only.
