How do you replace the alternator on a 1986 Chevy Nova Hatchback?

It's easy. Having a repair manual like a Haynes would make it even easier, simply because of the pictures, but I'll try and describe it. First, disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, followed by any electrical connections between the alternator and everything else. Now, when you're looking at the alternator from the front of the car, at the very bottom is an adjustment bolt for the belt...loosen that so that there is a bit of slack on the belt. On the side of the alternator (I don't remember which side, sorry) are two bolts...simply undo those and it'll come right out. Installation is the reverse of removal, but make sure you tighten the belt to the specified tension.

Where is the alternator on a Honda Shadow 750?

Stator (alternator) and removal/and installation: 1. Place the bike on the center stand. 2. Remove both side side covers and the seat. 3. Disconnect the battery negative lead. 4. a) 1983-85: disconnect the electrical connector going to the alternator/stator assembly b) 1986 and on: remove the fuel pump stay. Then disconnect the electrical connector going to the alternator/stator assembly. 5. Remove the screw securing the left hand rear crankcase cover and remove the cover. 6. Remove the exhaust system from the rear cylinder. 7. Remove the bolt securing the gear shift pedal and remove the pedal. 8. Remove the bolts securing the left front foot peg and remove the foot peg. Note: in the following step it is not necessary to disconnect the hydraulic from the clutch slave cylinder. If the hydraulic line is disconnected the clutch system must be bled. 9. Remove the bolts securing the clutch slave cylinder and bracket. Remove the bracket and pull the clutch slave cylinder, with the hydraulic line still attached, back and out of the way. 10. Remove the bolt securing the coolant pipe protector and remove the protector. 11. Remove the bolt securing the alternator cover and remove the cover, gasket and the electrical harness from the frame. Note the path of the wire harness as it must be routed the same during installation. 12. Remove the electrical harness from the clips on the frame. 13. Remove the bolt and wire clamp securing the wire to the housing. 14. Remove the bolts securing the alternator/stator to the alternator cover. 15. Carefully pull the rubber grommet and electrical wire harness from the alternator cover. 16. Install by reversing these removal steps, noting the following: 17. Be sure to install the wire clamp. If the clamp is left off the rotor may rub against the wires, wear off the insulation and cause a short in the circuit. I hope this tells you where the alternator is. It may help if you want to remove it.

Put your Honda on jack stands (not on the suspension) and let the wheel droop down. Then, once you unbolt the alternator, you should be able to slide it out past the axle shaft. I'm actually going to be replacing my 86' civic's alternator this weekend.
