Alternator Removal

Ok, now I'm trying to get the ALT off and after removing the two bolts which hold it in place on its bracket, It still doesn't come off. It appears to have two bushings which the bolts slide thru on the front of the ALT bracket. Alternator is still stuck in place and won't budge.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the bushings or do I just apply more force to remove the ALT.

Thanks!!!

Also, I finally disconnected the throttle/Cruise Control cable from the cam near the throttle body, but I can't figure out how to get the cable off from the end where it's secured in place by two 13mm nuts.

At this rate, it's gonna take me a month to get this head gasket job done.

Sheesh!!!

I've always had to wedge the alternator out after removing the bolts... there is a bit of space on the right hand side of it to get a prybar/big screwdriver/back of a breaker bar and lift up on it.

lift them up so the tension is loose then slide that littler cylinder out of the hole

ya, but what about the other end where there are two 13mm screws which lock the cables onto the bracket in front of the intake area. I got that little pin out of the cylinder this morning.

Unscrew the nut past the undercut in the threads and slide the undercut area through the opening in the bracket.
