the reason i asked is because the boltt that the fusible link connects got so hot it must have broke off a little and now my fusible link wire melts 2-4 times a month......Can that bolt be relpaced or do you have just get a new alternator?
Expert:  Jerry replied 8 years ago.
It could be replaced however, the part itself will be very hard to find. That is something that would be done when it is rebuilt. You might be able to find a rebuilder which may be a lot less for that repair. Or, a replacement alternator.
