If you took everything from the 91, you should have two castings, one of each bolt to each head. The alternator will be located on the drivers side bracket along with the power steering pump below it. The passenger side bracket will carry the AC compressor or if not so equipped there will be an idler pulley in that location. If you have to relocate the alternator from the passenger to driver's side, the parts houses speed shops carry a wire extension kit for the relocation, this is way simpler and cheaper than trying to relocated the alternator to the passenger side. Also keep in mind that the serpentine power steering pump mounts differently than the V-belt and probably won't fit the serpentine factory bracket.
You need the water pump for the reverse rotation of the serpentine compared to the V-belt and if this uses a pump driven fan, you also need the serpentine fan.
