Flathead Ford V8, 12V alternator fit

Question: I've got a 1950 Ford P/U, 239 Flathead V8. I'm restoring the truck, but converting electrical to 12V negative ground. What should I do for the alternator? The original 6V generator sat atop the engine and had a wide band to hold the round case in position, modern alternators have an oblong case where the bolt goes through it. Somebody else out there's had the same problem, I'm sure. How did you solve it?!? Thanks, Dave
