GM Alternator

I`m almost ready to drop my Vortec 350 in my 86 Olds Cutlass, problem is, I upgraded to a serpentine belt system off a 92 Camaro, I was able to get a newer small GM alternator the serpentine system requires since it has a staggered bolt pattern and not straight across as the older ones were. How do I go about wiring it up? the newer alternator has a plug on it that has one large prong and 3 smaller ones instead of 2 large ones like the older ones had. Does anyone make a adapter? Any help here is appreciated.

I recently did the same thing on my big block 454, droping it into my 72 chevelle. I also went with the 92 serpentine system ( talk about mods) and had really really bad alternator problems. I also switched to the new alternator. I will post where I got my pigtail, and what wires I used, as well as how to wire it up later.
