Goddamn, FINALLY got those connections loose!
Old unit is out, gonna start fresh in the morning and hope reinstalling the new one is a bit smoother
One thing I've learned, universal joint FTW; never could have gotten that last bolt that's closest to the middle of the car without one!
Also noticed that the harness is secured to the alternator with a bracket, and then to the engine further down...is that completely necessary you think? That was what made getting those connections so difficult: had no slack in the harness to turn the alternator around and get at them.
