1978 Starfire alternator rebuilt

I am in process of restoration of an old good Oldsmobile Starfire. It is 1978, 5.0 L (small engine block). Apart of numerous cosmetic imperfections which are normal for its age, there are serious electrical problems with it. I am not talking about the lights or other stuff, first I decided to make the vehicle work. And its alternator pulley won't rotate. I am fine with getting the bushes replaced or something, yet I was wondering whether it would be reasonable in such a case to bother, or I should better grab a new alternator with pulley? If anyone has got experience in dealing with teh alternator rebuilt, I would appreciate a friendly advice.

Yesterday took a closer look at the alternator, and it appeared that the alternator bolt is no good. I thought of getting something off my local hardware store, but checked online and found the alt bolt specified for my Starfire (https://www.carid.com/alternator-bolts/). Will get it replaced to see whether it will do that, and if no then I guess will have to grab another alternator....
