identify random old engine brackets

the top two brackets in this pic; anyone have any idea what they are? the second one down seems like it is maybe power steering pump brace for 70s chevy straight six engines.,.



and the bottom two brackets in this pic i have no idea what they are for:


the first top one is smog pump sbc

and the rest are v-8 p/s pump and a 6 cyl alt strap bracket.


thanks for anything

I have a chrome version of the two bottem brackets in the first picture and got them from a chevelle guy he said they were an olderstyle alternator bracket. Curious what some others have to say.

Top pic, top bracket looks like an A/C bracket, not sure what for though. 2nd one down looks like P/S or alternator bracket for inline 6, bottom two are alternator pivot brackets for inline 6s.
2nd pic, you named all I know or would guess about them.

That do look to be GM, but as for what they fit, I have no clue. I never throw brackets away, sooner or later i use them, either for their original purpose, or I fabricate something else out of them,

yeah that is so true and is why i have these ones, yep

i plan keeping them and since the time i made this thread i have acquired many more, includin some power steering and a/c setups for sbc engines 70s and 80s years,

going in the attic out of the way..... for who knows how many years, or until i sell or trade them off

one p/s is a 1960's one..

thanks

The bottom two in the first pic appear to be V8 alternator brackets that bolt onto side-mount style ram's horn exhaust manifolds.
