If the "second" alternator is in your way but of higher output than the other, why not move the higher output alternator to where the first one is?

BTW - unless the alternator output is very low, 12GA is too small. Even the 8ga used on the "higher output" alternator sounds too small - and it should go straight to a battery bank and be properly fused.
