It sounds like the threads are stripped. Hopefully it's just the bolt and not the block. Try wedging a screwdriver between the spacer and alternator while you loosen it. Sometimes the spacer is rusted to the bolt. You might have to use a vise grip to hold the spacer. Most home center stores carry the correct size long bolt.
