Alternated belt ripped, checked the alternator and it was loose as hell on the bottom so I checked the hoe and it’s completely bored out. Any suggestions on how to repair without an engine swap? The alternator bolt hole is connected to the engine block.

Can't tell from pics.....does hole go all the way thru cover and block and threads are gone? If so, then get a grade 8 bolt long enough to go all the way thru bracket cover and block and enough to put nut on backside, maybe double nut so it doesn't back off.

The problem with that is the bolt will not stay straight, the hole for the bolt is double the size of the original hole and it still has to much room to move around and will unposition the alternator. that’s how the belt ripped from the alternator bolt moving and landing on the belt

Thank for all the help
Got it running again.
Use j/b weld to fill gaps
Has this fix held up for you? I’m having the same issue and the shop did the exact same thing that you did. I’m wondering if it was successful, and for how long? I greatly appreciate a response. I love my XB, And I want to keep it!
