It's very likely you're going to have belt slip on the alternator. The rule of thumb for alternator is 110-120 degree minimum belt wrap and the 60 degrees shown is not nearly enough wrap.

It appears there's sufficient space to move both idler pulleys into the center of the engine and gain considerably more wrap.

On the Packard V8 I just finished a custom PS/AC/alternator setup and it required three belts. No two-belt arrangement I could fit within the available space would do it with two belts and enough wrap to guarantee no squeal.
