Mounting the alternator with the Tiger provided brackets requires removal of one of the upper cambelt cover bolt mountings.  The plastic part must be sawed off the upper cambelt cover and the matching piece of metal cut off the back plate.

 Here is the upper bracket in the space where the upper cam cover bolt would have been.

The upper alternator mounting bracket can only be mounted by bolting through the inlet manifold flange, i.e. the alternator bracket bolts partly hold the manifold on to the engine head.

The finished article with the drive belt in place and tensioned.  The engine was turned over by hand a couple of times to check the drive belt was running freely and straight, i.e. on the right grooves of each pulley.
