[Vwdiesel] Alternator bracket mods

After an ongoing struggle with the alternator belt on my 91 NA, I tried new
HD  "Gatorback" belts for both the AC and alt.
They must be slightly bigger than stock, because with the AC belt tensioned
correctly, the idler for the alt belt goes to the end of its adjustment
without getting the belt tight enough.

Has anyone modified their Alternator brackets to accept a wider range of
commercially available belts, and if so, how?
