Yes, but the belt may fight you. You will have to retension the belt when you install the alternator. It can be done. Look on John Finn's posts and he has a plan to make a device to help tension belts made from a block of wood. DON"T use a crowbar. My 1980 FC35 has a turnbuckle device making alternator belt tensioning easy, but different years of BB have used various methods.
