Take a look at a Ford Merkur AC mount. You can use it to place the alternator on the pass side of the engine where it leaves the driver side uncovered to be easy to work on. Bracket is a direct bolt on and requires only a single new hole to be drilled plus about 2" of the brackets top to be sawed off. Easy fix
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
