Default Trouble fitting wastegate actuator with Yoshifab bracket B230

I'm trying to fit a 16T into my 90' 240 with the yoshifab relocation bracket and I'm having issues with the actuator hitting the alternator. I have an actuator from a Garrett T3 which should would work if the alternator wasn't in the way. I've read about the external wastegates but that seems like a lot of work for what I'm trying to achieve. I'll have to check what Amperage alternator I have. Looks pretty big so it could be a 100A which is maybe my issue. I'll update tomorrow with pictures. If anyone else has had issues with the actuator please post your solutions!
Thanks

Maybe try a shorter belt for the alt so it's closer to the engine.

Are you running a large old style T3 actuator or the newer, smaller type?

Tilted it all the way up with no success. Probably the size of my actuator

Try this guy. If you want more adjustability the Kinugawa units with interchangeable springs are also a good choice

Different turbo (T3/T4), with a Kinugawa actuator and a "small case" alternator. Perhaps you can clock the turbo one way or the other?

Your 15G was "clocked", so that means the alignment pin is removed; you can just put a breaker bar into the compressor housing outlet and "reclock" the compressor housing easily.
