stay with the generator,if you have gone to the trouble of staying stock a alternator looks like crap. also pre lube the engine be for startup. i would go with 10 30 oil and the gm aditive. remember if the 292 has the original distributor you must use original teapot holley as you have no centrifical advance, vacume only later carbs have incorect vacume signal for 55 distributor.

i sent for one of them and it did not work it came out to far ( to close to the front sup.) i asked him if he had one that was a little closer to the engine but he did not have one.
he said he was working on one for a 55 thunderbird but never heard from him again. tried to contact him but no response

a source for bird help,

http://www.larrystbird.com/index.php3

30 years + doin' birds.....

use the contact page to order the catalog and describe your fit problem

"plan B"=there are much smaller alt available from the imports

(friggin' CRS!)....I swear I've seen a alt that is built to look just like the original generator to keep the factory look and mount and can't recall from who

here's another helpful link....
http://www.ctci.org/
a ton of early bird specific info, here's an example (look under Gil's garage for 6V to 12V convert):
