I haven't noticed any oil leakage from my TR.

I should think that the electrical connection location would dictate the orientation, but if there is enough slack ...

As to shims, there must be enough takeup in the tensioner for a slight difference. Just be certain what you do doesn't affect the pulley/belt alignnments. Rotating the position may be the better solution.
No! It matters!!!

Good luck. vic

The larger diameter 150A alternator will have interference issues if mounted backwards as you discovered.

I have also seen improperly stored salvage yard engines suffer alternator seizure due to corrosion and prevent minimum starter motor speeds for start to occur.
