CS series GM alternators

I am planning on using a stock alt off the 1989 IROC I bought to supply the power plant for my 37 Terraplane project. To save $$, I had it taken apart by a local re-builder, so I could polish it, instead of spending more to get a chrome one. I am about finished polishing, but I got the alt bracket in the mail, and I've come to find I have one of those "10 and 2" o'clock front housings, instead of a "3 and 9" o'clock ones that I see everywhere else. [also the one the bracket supplier suggests] My ques is; anyone know what cars the "3 and 9" were used on? I can pick up another one cheap at the local pull-a-part, and just use the front housing on my guts, as this is 180$ plus anywhere else I see it. I've seen it called a "racing alt", heavy duty, etc.
Thanks for any info!!

Found!!

I guess they are more common then I thought. Now, as long as the rebuilder can mate them up......? And thanks for the tip about the clear coat. Although on the motorcycles I havent used it, it'd be too hard to clean off to re-polish it. Lets see now, clear on the pulleys, the fuel runners, the timing chain cover, the brackets, the plenum, tubes,..........better get a couple cans!
