That's a very common engine.. a quick tour around your marina should turn up a few examples, I'd just ask around and get some data from them.
In addition to pulley alignment you'll have to be sure there's going to be clearance for the new alternator inside the compartment, and also that there's room to accommodate the length of the alternator alongside the engine.
btw these engines are mostly referred to as Universal Diesels - the Atomic label was only attached to the early versions.
