Re: 85 1.8L alternator removal!?!?!?!?

we have removed all of the hoses in the way and unbolted the alternator from the motor and now it is just sitting there. We cant seem to pull it out though because it wont fit. we have tried pulling the carburetor and see if it will come out that way but needless to say that didn't work either. would it just be easier to pull the motor? I am at a complete loss we workied on it for about 4 hrs or more yesterday.

When my alternator went out, we were able to wiggle it out where the air filter was. Did you loosen the belt and everything?
