[Healeys] Stuck generator

Seeking the collective wisdom.  When I installed the generator on my newly
rebuilt engine last December it was a tight fit.  Fine, I thought.  After
1,500 or so miles, Saturday the generator light comes on.  Upon inspection,
the belt is intact, but I can turn the generator pulley by hand and the belt
has too much play.  No problem, just tighten it up.  Wrong.  With all my
strength I can't get the generator to do more than barely wiggle with the
mounting bolts fully slackened.  Thoughts on the best way to free up the
generator's up/down movement?  I'll probably need to file down the ears a
bit to make for an easier fit.
