Default please help with my rotated manifold setup

Before anyone ****s all over the floor; yes, I did look at this thread http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=807772 . I bought 8mm spacers and flipped the IM around. the TB still will not clear the alternator. so I yanked out my ac and now that I reference that thread I see that there are no dog gone pictures so I have no idea what the hell to do with this ac bracket...someone please point me in the right direction. All I need to do is figure out how to flip this damn thing then its off to the welder for piping...

Have you tried getting more clearance between the TB and alternator by rotating the TB, so the throttle actuator isn't facing down.

What about puting a shorter alternator belt on so the alternator sits lower.
With the alt where the AC was shouldn't be an issue but like mentioned above u can try that

Put the alternator as low as it can go then wrap a string around both pulleys and measure to see what length of belt u will need. But check to make sure the alternator will clear the TB first or will be a waste of time.

As for wiring there is lots of methods of doing this just make sure u use automotive wiring and don't ghetto rig it lol.
Do some searching unless someone chimes in with the best way that will suit u.

You sure as **** didnt read through that thread very well. You can put your ac back on if you like cool air. Your going to need a 34-34.5 inch belt. Make it fit. Make ic piping fit. Done.

Read what the dbw people did. Mod the alternator, and terminal. Look how to slot he alt lower. Its all in the last 10-15 pages of that thread. If you want to do it and make it look good do a little research like he rest of us.

So what your saying is you didn't read it and you just want to be told what to do.

I ground my alt bracket down so I could get it as low as possible. Works good, last long time.

figured it out myself. I pretty much didnt have to do jack **** but slap a 40in belt on it. rotate that Alt. post and lengthen the power wire. I already had 8mm phenolic spacers so im sure that helped. VERY east to rotate the IM
