    Does anyone know what size and length the alternator pivot bolt is on a 22re? It's the long one with a nut on the bottom.

    I've seemed to misplaced mine and would love to get the alternator on this weekend. Thanks!

    Length is easy, just measure the bracket tabs.

    They're going to be M10 bolts (14mm head).
    As said above, if you have the alternator off just measure the length of the tabs it passes through on the unit and add another inch or two. To some extent it doesn't have to be perfect b/c you're going to just run the nut down on it if it's too long. Hell a 3/8" bolt would probably work, just be sure to use fine thread so you can get the nut tight.

    I was bored so I went out to the garage and measured.
    The lower bracket rear section is a little thick.
    Looks about 11.5cm long. Call it 12cm.

    Keep in mind if you buy an M10 at a hardware store it will probably be E-spec at 1.5 thread pitch, not the J-spec 1.25 that matches the truck so get a matching nut too.

    I bought the longest 10mm bolt I could find at the hardware store and it wasn't long enough. I wound up using a 3/8 bolt. It seems to work fine.
