why do you want 8 volt batteries ? this just doesn't make sense to me but i could be missing something , try a battery store . i can see using 2 6 volts to make 12 with more amperage but 8 just makes me wonder .

Stick the second alt into an a/c bracket or some custom made brackets, then run wire from it back to the battery.

Im not sure about ground, but I believe you would have to run a separate ground as well, rather than grounding through the chassis.
