FMTRVT; I can see what is meant by clocking it now, thanks. Does that change any internal adjustment significantly like the rotor to stator air gap? I have never clocked one like that but now can see why if might be done to align the wiring.
I also can't tell from the photo if the old and new pulleys are the same OS diameter. I would be more worried about putting a smaller one on and speeding it up at all engine speeds. If the new alternator is rated for X then there is no reason to believe it needs more speed and achieve a 1X multiple, that might even be a problem.
Washers as shims and spacers, pretty common. I also wouldn't use a split or lock washer. Lock washers are the fastener industries joke on us anyway. If it is loose it's loose and a lock washer won't tighten up anything. They often break, so I throw them away and torque bolts and use the correct grade and thickness of flat washer.
That height issue might be important, probably not, wonder what it did to the belt tensioner position.
