I just installed the bracket last night.

I think you've got the other end of the bracket on the wrong water pump bolt if it's compressing the hose.

Can anyone tell me if this is the bracket referred to above that will fix the problem of the lower flange cracking? The previous owner did not get this installed and it looks as though mine is cracking much like Hester's. I'd prefer to not have my alternator go flying off

I had my alternator replaced 3 years ago due to the lower flange being broken. The dealer installed the bracket at the same time and the new one is holding up fine with no sign of any new cracks.

I imagine so, but I'm wondering if the using the bracket with a partially cracked flange will prevent me from having to replace the alternator.
