454...."the front fell off..."

Trying to put my 76 GMC truck engine back together in my '38 Chev sedan. I put a new H2O pump on, then figured out the long one wouldn't work with the alternator mount I had. As I wanted to delete the engine fan, I thought I'd just upgrade to an aluminum short H2O pump. Turned out the Alternator mount was marked for a short pump. Well, I put on the short pump, then figured out the alternator mount(one of those polished aluminum triangles) is totally unusable with it. And, to top things off,the spiffy polished pulley that came with the new pump hits the crank damper. Once I figure this crap out, I'll probably hafta reinvent the wheel in order to mount the new PS pump I'll need. Any suggestions? I'd like to avoid replacing every single thing I've managed to accumulate so far. (I'll post pix tomorrow, as I'm not at home now). Perhaps someone has pix of a completes system such as mine. And, no, I'm not gonna pony up hundreds for one of those lovely, elaborate polished multiplexes I see advertised. Only due to lack of funds, not lack of taste.

496, that is the alternator mount I have. I just don't see a way of bolting it to my short H2O pump. And, I need to put the PS pump low and close cuz the engine bay is teeny.

If you can't get your brackets to work here is an excellent source: Chevrolet Steel Mounting Brackets

It's going in a 1938 Chevy, so the front of the engine bay is really tight.
