Full finite-range macroscopic calculations in the distorted-wave Born approximation have been performed using the molecular and Michel $\alpha $-nucleus potentials to analyze the angular distributions of cross-sections of the 27Al( $\alpha,d$) 29Si reaction, at 26.5 and 27.2 MeV incident energies, leading to seven transitions up to the excitation energy $E_{\rm X} = 4.08$ MeV of the final nucleus. The parameters of the two types of the $\alpha $-nucleus potentials are determined from the elastic-scattering data. Both the molecular and Michel potentials, without any adjustment to the parameters needed to fit the elastic-scattering data, are able in most cases to reproduce, simultaneously, the absolute cross-sections particularly at large angles, where the previous calculations failed to reproduce by orders of magnitude, and the gross pattern of angular distributions of the reaction. The deuteron-cluster spectroscopic factors for most of the seven transitions, deduced using the two $\alpha $- 27Al potentials, differ from those obtained in earlier works. The spectroscopic factor for the ground-state transition, deduced in the present work for the 25.8 MeV data, agrees well with the shell model prediction.
