      Most of the time you can use the generator bracket with a long bolt and a spacer to take up the extra space not used by the alternator. The trick is getting an adjusting arm to fit and a belt.

          When I converted our 63 Lark over to a later GM one wire alternator, the GM alternator mounting point was a little narrower than the original, so I just shimmed it up with washers. Works great for 11 years now. Set your new alternator down on your braket and seewhere you are at.
