i'm real happy with my alan grove high mount setup. haven't slung a belt yet, and it cleared my oil fill on the intake.
You can do something like this this it worked well for me and the pieces are easy to come by or make.
OMG BE STILL MY HEART I cant catch my breath
Here's mine...'65 motor, so the alternator is correct for that year. I suppose it would look better tucked in by the frame, but I've never had a thing for trying to hide engine parts. Besides, by the time I'd get to it, they'd probably be taking my license away.
So you're saying the motor is a 1965 and the alternator is too?
I call shens- no way that is a 1965 alternator.
No, I'm just stating that alternators did come with the '65's. I mainly posted this to give the o.p. an extra idea.
I agree they come in plain steel, but painted black and under the hood. best for the money.
Go to Allan Grove, just bought one myself , long pump application, mounts in front of passenger side head, off of the water pump $25 bucks works great
I know I'm over a year behind, but the question remains. Has anyone drilled and tapped holes?
I want to use serpentine bracketery off a newer motor on a double hump head motor.
Anyone actually ever drill and tap holes into those heads?
yeah its a oldie but a goodie, but I have a pair of 65 300hp heads that were drilled and tapped. Friend did them back in 1974. didn't leak at holes( used some kind of sealant). had to space everything out( I think) to get it to line up. it can be done. where on the head are you going to have to drill them?although??? that serpentine bracket may be metric, may have to enlarge holes in bracket for a 3/8-16 bolt?????.. smarter guys what say you???
