Hi Everyone, New Street Rodder here, with a question

Hi everyone, new street rodder here.

To start, i have been a MoPar guy all my life, and worked on my own stuff too, that being said, i am somewhat unschooled in GM stuff, meaning i have never owned one and dont know much about 350's etc.

I have had C body, B body and A body Chrysler products and have a 69 Super Bee right now.

My wife has been a hot rod girl for a long time, she had a 66 Charger, a 70 442 and a lifted 77 GMC in the 70's truck craze.

So... the other day we had the chance to buy a 41 Chrysler street rod she fell in love with. Actually its a 41 Chrysler Business Coupe with a 37 Chevy front end, with a 350/350 10 bolt, GM electrics etc.

So, the alternator was making a nasty grinding noise so i replaced it, how fun, my first lesson in working around fat fenders. Some of you guys may have the same set up. Its got a neat turnbuckle style belt tightening bracket, but it sure shakes around alot.

It doesnt have a brace from the back of the alternator to the manifold. Does someone make one? I can post some pics of the engine if need be, or just for the heck of it if anyone is interested.

Thanks

Post a pic of what you have right now that will help, but there are some after-market stuff out there that will work i am sure.

What kind of fitting point do you have on the back of the alternator? I got a 68 chrysler newport and it had a simple bar from the manifold to a/c that is just a round tube with flat ends for bolts that are twisted at angles to sit flush to the surfaces. You may could sorta make one, measure what you need from an existing manifold bolt hole to your mounting point.

I am sure they make one but i would do like 502 said and fab one up and have it chromed or something, wouldn't be a big job. JMO
If your air compressor was on the other side you could re-locate the alternator to the passenger side and use a stock mounting bracket set-up. Now that would have been a easy fix.

That's a sweet ride whatever you do it must do it justice under the hood. Is there enough room to use a low mount set-up on that side of the engine ? March makes them and as do some other company's. kinda looks like a march set-up on it now but a low mount would be nice if you have to room. JMO
