As John said, the brackets and wide belt pulleys are available from lots of
places. The bracket for 49-53 is slightly different from 32-48 because of
the width of the corresponding bracket on the intake manifold. I did end up
needing a different belt on my truck. I've got some pictures and

The nice thing about one wire alternator when replacing a very early
generator is that the early cars never had a voltage regulator -- just a
'generator cutout' and so the stock wiring harness only has one wire
anyway. If you have a 38 or later with a voltage regulator, you can still
use the one wire alternator, of course, but have to change the wiring slightly.
