so i aquired some flathead brackets that let you mount the newer delco alternator on them (i believe they are both ford, just different years) from a buddy and i can wanting to start cutting them on my own to sell. so my question is this: they both have a real thick bottom on them (like 1/2" or 3/4" or something, i didnt measure them), and 1 has 2 holes tapped in the middle. will it work to just cut these out of 1/4" mild steel or does the engine require this thick part for it to work? i attached a pic of the brackets after i test cut them to check everything. thanks for any help, and if these work i will be selling them soon.
