Fitting the alternator should have been an easy job. Simply take the Pilgrim Alternator bracket and fit to the Rover V8, then attach the alternator... Sadly, the alternator pulley didn't line up with the water pump and so the bracket needing cutting back to allow the alternator to slide back.

Since the alternator is situated on the other side of the engine then it needs a slight modification. This involved removing the 3 long bolts and rotating the front section - this allows the pivot bolt to sit at the bottom and the 3rd bolt hole to be top-right as shown:
Now the alternator, fans, horn, temperature sender, oil pressure sensor, and coil are fitted the loom can be tidied up and tied down around the front end of the chassis:
