Anybody remove and replace the alternator in a 1979 231 lately? Is there enough clearance to remove it without pivoting the entire engine on a mount?

I have the MB engine and agree that it can be removed out the top.  Careful with ignition leads and the wires to the mags but it can be done.  I have dual alternators and the back-up had to be removed.  It's easier if the left mag is removed but it can be done without removing it.  Two of the three nuts holding the alternator are a bear to get at - taking off is much easier than getting on.  Have fun and be patient.
