Stu : I assume that you have the alignment that you want!? 
If that's the permanent solution I'll quote Mainsail, "You must be joking"?!  Nylon is soft/especially when heated it's pliable and will NOT hold up in that environment!!!
  
I'd go to a machine shop and get a metal spacer made OR get a stack of metal washers to replace those nylon gidgets you inserted.
 
Also Nylon is compressible and you want something solid to really hold down that alternator in place solidly as the engine vibrates!!
