Might be something you want to check into.
Alternator looks really nice though!
Had to do that with my boat when I first got it. The PO had changed the alternator but no spacer. I used a piece of pipe that I painted. I plan on having my brackets, and that spacer, anodized this year. Now that I think about it, I think I used a 1/2" drive deep impact socket to run it in the driveway at first.
