Please confirm to me but I believe the alternator is driven with the serpintine belt. If this is the case there is an idler/tension pulley that would need to be first loosened (I believe it is a 14MM) then at the top of the bracket where this pulley is mounted there is a bolt that you rotate to either loosen or tighten the belt (by turning this bolt you either raise or lower the pulley.
I hope this may have helped,

The Effects of Over Revving a motor can be Catastrophic. I do not understand why the government would require someone to do such a test. Normal Emissions Testing is done at High (2100 - 2500) and the Idle (500-900).

Reason for Increased Smoke.... As you increase the internal pressure of the vehicle, you are creating a VACUUM and this is suckking the Oil past the rings, and anywhere else that it is causing the Vacuum.

Efffects of Over Revving van be Premature Failure of the engine (Could cost you $5-$8,000 to replace)... I would ask WHY so high... A Diesel would MAX OUT their RPM @ 4,000.

These people who are doing the test, ask them to show you where it says in WRITING 4,000... That is much higher than in the 4 states I have been certified to be an I/M Inspector

You will need a blanket and a flashlight.
One way to get the truck high enough to look under it is to drive either the right side wheels or the left side wheels up onto a curb.
Then get under it and look halfway between the end of the transmission and the rear axle pumpkin.
A carrier bearing is the round thing about half way between these two.
Just a little more information.
The carrier bearing is found roughly about the place where the back of the front seat is above you. The carrier bearing is likely the size of a breakfast cereal bow,l, .
The pumpkin is the big gear holder exactly in the middle between the rear wheels, and is about the size of a large dinner plate.
Your vehicle is old enough to need one if you have not had it replaced yet.
These normally will give you some notice of their failure, such as a vibration or noise of some kind, be not in every case.
Be blessed.
