Is the alt. in stock location, or mounted where the ac compressor was? If it's in the stock location, use a pully from any mk2 golf/jetta 8v, or fox. If you put is where the ac compressor was, use the stock pully.

Use the proper bracket and you'll have no problems....

You know what really sucks, an 8v bracket is excatly the same as the non A/C 16v bracket.

Why are you not using the stock hydro front mount, that diesel/early 8v bracket causes too much engine movement and will eventually crack the ehuast manifold. It doesn't matter how stiff the insert is either because as long as there is a pivot point the engine will move.

That alternator bracket is completely different than any 8v one. I've been running that bracket in my GTI for 9 years and never had any problems. It's a stock early front mount with no extra intersts or anything....

How many years was a 16v in there, and how many exhuast manifolds have you cracked? Been there done that, I can tell you haven't yet.
