Default broken wire on back of alternator and alternator replacement

The prongs/ring of the light blue wire on the back of my alternator have broken so I have no connection. I assume this is bad. my idea to fix is to slide a new, larger diameter over existing and crimp closed. Any objections to this idea? I read the DIY on replacing the oil filter gasket and bush. Looks pretty straight forward. I am at a friends house out of state. He has no tools so I will buy a small set. gonna buy a 1/4 drive and sockets for back two nuts 10mm & 13mm also open end wrenches for alternator 16mm, etc. I have screw driver & phillips tire iron for leverage. does belt tension with hydaulic pulley? do I just slide serpentine on by hand and engine does the rest? thanks from Las Vegas JP in AZ

I'd say your fix is good for a temp solution but you'll definitely want to strip the end of the wire and crimp a new connection on it soon

the pulley right next to the two on the alternator is the tensioner, use a flathead to pry the plastic cover off of it, then you can stick a socket on it, I don't remember what size the socket is though

ok, got the pulley plastic cover off . looks like a good sized nut to remove. will the pulley come off the end of the old alternator easily or will I need a mechanical puller?

you don't have to remove the nut, you turn it to the right like your tightening it and the whole thing it's attached to pivots, the new alternator should come with a new pulley already on it

picked up alternator from Autozone last night. no pulley. planning to remove & use old one.
Has anyone else used old pulley or is it going to be impractical to remove/reinstall old pulley?
