Sorry to thread Jack but I was wondering if there Is a special/certain way to remove the square head bolt holding the alternator to the engine block?
loosen the belt first, remove the long nut on the back side of that bolt and it should come out easy

Does this have the steel 'skeleton' grippers  moulded into the rubber like the original? Your new find looks great to me.
Yes, all these types of seals have a steel or aluminum skeletons to act as a spine, and most have at least one built in barb or gripper as you called it inside the length of the channel to grab and hold to the edge of whatever you are applying it to. This particular one has 3 barbs on one side and a single one on the other side. Those barbs act as grippers and a seal. I’m stoked to have found such a nice fit and finish for this, and am somewhat surprised of low numbers of interest here thus far. I’m sure when I put it on FB I will get a lot more action, but holding off for now.

Material is arriving Monday. Expect pics Tuesday of the finished product installed on mine. After that, I will see if adding the velvet tape enhances the performance and let you know if that will be an added option. If the 5 guys in thus far are still in, there are 10 more spots at the GP price.
