That's not it at all.. there is a bolt down below the alternator that mine is attached to using the correct length black cable.

Yep, look for a threaded hole in the block behind the alternator.

Sometimes...if you having strange electrical problems, etc. it may be necessary to also run a cable from the engine to the frame. Most anywhere on the engine to most anywhere on the frame will do. Just pick a good sized bolt (maybe something 5/16" or bigger) and use a battery type cable with loop ends.
