I saw one somewhere on a forum where the guy had mounted the alt way up
high in the engine compartment.  It was a bastdardized AC mod.  It
looked like a good idea to get the alternator up out of the soup of road

Not a problem.  Leave the Alt where it is. You will need to change the 
pully on the alt and use a different crank pully.  I used the crank 
pully off of a 1.5 gasser, don't remember where the different alt pully 
was sourced from.  Then all you have to do is find a belt that fits.  
The best way is to have a source of parts cars to mix and match.  The 
belt run is a little long, but I seemed to have less problems with the 
alt loosening up.  If you are picture capable on your email account I 
can see if the digital camera can get a picture of my setup.
