Worn Alternator Mounts

I have just discovered that the alternator mounts on my Yanmar 1GM10 are worn and the belt pullies are out of alignment. Does anyone have any tips on a quick insitue repair. I have not removed the alternator yet but I guess both the engine and the alternator bolt holes will be worn.

Are these on the engine or on the alternator.....

If you go to a Hardware store, you might be able to find bronze bushings that you can fit.

I Have gott a picture somewhere of an alternator where I drilled out the ears to a larger size and put the bushings in.
