I greatly appreciate the help. I have been looking online for the last few hours at work (oops) and I still find nothing. (sigh)

Hold up....
I have a 1987 Suburban that is setup exactly like yours... Alternator and airpump on pass side.
I have some pictures of it, and I spent time looking at them...
I cannot see it, but....
The place that I am thinking for your bracket is on the back of the Airpump... I can see a bolt and a thick steel bracket...

Let me go look at it tomorrow and see if I can see your bracket!

That bracket in the photo goes in the alternator. It is the spacer bar that goes over the long bolt, but inside of the 2 holes in the alternator. Nothing went into the smaller holes on my engine. Just the bolt through the long tube part. I used the flat part with holes to hold the spacer bar while wiggling it to get the bolt to line up. I just changed the belts this summer.

Really - you mean, it is basically a useless part? OK - I'll take a look at that again. I thought of that but it didn't make sense to me so I assumed that it fell from somewhere else. Thanks!!

It's not a useless part. It keeps the cast alternator bolt holes from breaking. It really does serve a purpose. If you tighten that bolt without the spacer, one of the small bolt holes will crack.

no, not yet. With the winter, it is sort of on hold. I am hoping for one or two more warm days to work on it but I don't think that will happen. It may just have to wait 'til the spring to complete.

Hi, maybe if you fired up your new flashlight, it would be warm enough for you to work on it.

That light puts out enough UV to give you a decent suntan! but I think I would need some serious sunglasses to work under it.

I have lots of tasks o complete once I get that bugger out - belts, vac hoses, t-stat, water pump, etc...
I took my 345 MH to Burning Man about 10 years ago and I felt so guilty! I had forgotten to wax it and the dust got in everywhere, at least in the coach. But yes, I didn't notice it interfering with the mechanical operation of the vehicle. But it took 2 of us 5 days to clean it. Never again.

Bless your heart if you're going back with yours
