Big block alternator low mount brackets question.


hi all. For this question I will talk in left hand drive mode to save confusion. So when I say drivers side it will be canadian driver side. I want to mount my AC compressor high on the drivers side head. Have the compressor and brackets. This means I will need to mount my alternator using low mount brackets on the drivers side. What do they look like? I have a long water pump. 

Anyone know what these brackets are?

thank you!

So with the long pump you have no pulley groove right back against the harmonic balancer, correct?

The reason I ask is, when I had the A/C and the 427 in my 65 Acadian, I mounted a compressor high on the driver's side. I moved the alternator down low using a 66 Impala 396 power steering bracket. The alternator fit almost perfectly in it, I had to put in a washer to shim it. I made my own adjuster bracket for the alternator. But the crankshaft drive pulley for the alternator was very close to the balancer. I just forget if I used the rear groove on the crank pulley for the alternator or for the compressor.

Right, getting annoyed......

want to mount the alt down low on the big block. RHS, that's the passenger side for the canadian folk out there. Trouble is, seems to be a radiator hose in the way....any ideas or tips?
