what do you mean...how do I know? just look at the set up. it's like squaring a door. You need one true surface to work from to get the door square. if one is off everything will be off. I don't know if it will work..if all the components are original and nothing has been swapped then most likely. but if not, then its hit and miss.
the alt looks crooked, it isn't the alt in most likely hood, so it must be the bracket and the way it is mounted. that is why I asked you to take a complete pic so I can see it. But not 100% until I see the "whole" picture. I can work from there. if the alt housing has been hammered on where the bolts go through then they won't mount flat and does makes it crooked.
the other thing you can do after posting the pic is take it apart and inspect the play on the mating parts.
ok, I just noticed you put some pics up. I checked
how much play does the bottom mounting bracket to the alt have. is there lots of space between the alt bolt holes and the bracket?
It looks to me that either you need to put a couple washers on to straighten it or perhaps the bolt holes on the bracket or alt are worn oval. allowing it to sit crooked. Take it apart and inspect your parts making sure they are mating correctly. You might need to improvise to get them to line up by shimming it. As I said, hit and miss. You'll be able to eye it once it's together. but make sure things are tight first.
