    PS Bracket

    Post  Myloth on Sat Feb 20, 2016 3:04 pm

    Could anyone (PLEASE) show a pic of their PS brackets.

    The bracket for mine the original I never had on correctly (Lost part? l)

    I tried this horror with way too much alignment issues I should have bought the steel with the 2 piece bottom





    I am going to to a yard Monday get something and then put together a straight bracket or die in the  trying.

    Any pics of your setup would be greatly appreciated year doesn't matter just what works for you.

    If I missed something here or anywhere even a link would be nice.

    What's ridiculous about the whole damn thing is my aluminum alternator bracket I have yet to have an  issue

    It's actually like the pic of the one here. Why these PS brackets don't work is insanely frustrating but

    it seems this one requires too many washers in the instructions. My original 79' isn't great either

    aside from being a hideous beast getting tension on it seemed impossible hence my request?

    here's the original




    Ok my panic attack has passed I didn't make out in the yard but I did make this yesterday and I believe

    it will work .( I bought a length of SS rod and the joints off ebay while back)



    I'll use it as the top bracket rather than that aluminum turd in the other pic. I also found out that

    style of kit would require a special pulley. No mention anywhere on Ebay(Where I got mine) or from March of this.

    I came up with a temporary solution with the heim joint although it's a little shaky

    and not 100 percent true. So I bought a different style mount that puts the PS pump on the

    block and grabs one bolt on the water pump should get on next week. Till then this is working ok

    I'm just glad the Napa pump checked out ok Smile.
