Big Block Chevy Power Steering Brackets

Seems like I'm forever coming to this site for answers, but I guess that's what it's all about. I'm upgrading my 65 Impala from a small block to a 65/66 396 block. The block I purchased had the drivers side alternator mounting brackets included and I'm using a short water pump. I ordered the 1969 brackets from Classic but nothing seems to line up. In fact I'm totally confused. None of the mounting hole line up with anything on my block. Did the 65/66 block have totally different accessory holes? Or are the 69 brackets made for a LWP? Does anyone know how to make this combination work? In other words, a SWP with drivers side mounted alternator and drivers side mounted PS unit on a 396 in a 65 Impala. Thanks

trucks kept short water pump through 72, so that can be a source of SWP p/s brackets setups if you can luckily stumble across one, even though they all seem to be long gone except in the northwest and some of the southern regions(i have a 72 truck 402 from years ago still, and i once saw a 69 c-20 in a junkyard badged 400 on the fenders which meant 402 in those)

trucks used both the 396 and 402 starting in '68(second year of that body style, called the CST era)

'73 car/truck 454 on left and 71 truck 402 on right pics here on my engines trannies etc photos page:

hope that helps possibly
