    Anyone have done this? Modified/made one by yourself, nothing fits because of the steeringbox.
    Really hate the upperbracket I have, so thinking of making one from scratch

    Please post pics of your enginebays!

    I have used late 60's smog pump brackets that put the alternator just to the right of center on the engine but getting the belt tension right is a bit tricky without and idler pulley.

    If the bracket is the same as on newer SBC then the one I made would work

    With a low bracket they work well on the pass side. Don't know how much room you have. They actually make a pass side low mount.

    Look at the www.agcbracket.com website. He makes nice stuff and prices are reasonable.

    I almost ordered a Alan bracket...but its too low, it would hit my steeringbox
     
  11. Why not fabricate something similar to the Alan Grove bracket and mount it on the opposite side of the block? HRP
