Bolt the alternator back onto the bracket and then bolt the bracket onto the block (alternatively, you may find it easier to bolt the bracket to the block first, then attach the alternator to it; do whichever is easier for you). Bolt the top alternator bracket to the block, then slip the belt over the alternator pulley and use a prybar to put tension on it while you tighten the top alternator bolt onto the bracket. I used a broomstick under my armpit to add tension while both hands were occupied tightening the top bolt. Think outside the box.
