1971 chevy 350 power steering pump

Hey as explained in the title i have a 1971 chevy 350 and cannot figure out how to mount the power steering pump. The brackets are already on it and it mounts to the drivers side. There is just one bracket that i cannot figure out how to put on. It is twisted at an extreme angle and i cannot figure out how to mount to the car and pump. if anyone has any pictures or instructions that would be great, thanks for your help.

Is this similar ?



The mounting bracket for power steering is also used for the A/C.

The description says it bolts to the head and slotted adjuster bracket.
Iīd assume itīs an alternative for the piece behind my steering pump reservoir.
I donīt have aircon now but it was always a puzzle to rebuild the setup after
doing anything to the front of my motor.

Are you running headers? That piece that malc showed is used when there is no exhaust manifold to bolt to anymore.....I made my own from a piece of flat steel.

Why did you move the alternator to the drivers side? That may be part of the problem.
