Angry 1995 sl500 - alternator,smog pump and?

We just got in the shop a theft recovered 1995 SL500. They took the front end including the smog pump, alternator and brackets...Unfortunately we CANNOT come up with one good picture of what exactly goes on the left side of the engine; It is obvious that the smog pump goes next to the fan (the hoses and vacuums fit right in), however, we cannot figure out how the brackets fit to hold the alternator. It seems that there is something else missing? Is there a pulley or tensioner on the left side? The pics of the engine that my MITCHELL on line gives shows a different engine setup - alternator first, smog pump second...It seems that I have a piece of the puzzle that I am missing...Help!

Don't know if this helps...

Hi. Looks like no one has given you a reply, so I'll try...
I believe the SL500 has the same basic M119 engine that my 1996 S500 has... except it has an earlier ignition system.
Anyway, when you say "left side" do you mean the passenger's side?
On my S500, the air (smog) pump is mounted directly beneath the passenger side (right) cylinder head and right beside the fan.
The bracket that holds it to the engine also mounts the alternator and an idler.
The alternator hangs beneath the air pump and slightly towards the crankshaft pulley.
The idler pulley is about 3 inches in diameter. The idler pulley is higher then the air pump and directly above the alternator pulley.
Hope this helps.
Hard to understand how this hooks together if you don't have the bracket... so, top to bottom its idler, air pump, and alternator.
Maybe there's an SL500 guy here who can send you a pix.
Hope this helps, KenP
