Most people use the links off of a spring shackle to mount the Delco one wire alternator but the whole mess swivels and you must take care so the belt is running straight. I welded in a 3/8s rod so it always keeps the belt straight every time you check the tension. The spacers are needed for the offset so weld them in and you wont drop one because it will roll to the dead center under the car.
Sorry no pic, but I use a short piece of 1/8"x1" channel iron. It lines up perfectly with a GM alternator, a flat strap at the rear steady's it even more. A 1/2" bolt that has been ground to fit into the channel keeps it from turning while it is tightened. Simple but effective.
