Cool LH altenator bracket

I want to get a LH altenator bracket for a small block chevy with a long water pump. it is for my 57 Chevy Wagon project. I want one so I can mount AC on the right hand side of the motor. I was suprised when I went to rob parts from a Chevy caprice with AC to see it had a RH altenator bracket. Is there any model that I should look for at the yard or should I just give up an accept that Chevy put the pump on the wrong side of the motor.

Allen Grove Components Has what you need, they have them in several differen"t styles and are reasonable. Or you could do it the RBBO way and fabricate your own.

I have thought about the posability. I owned an 88 buick with a 307 0lds motor. The brackets were on the correct side of the motor. Would the bracket fit my chevy small block? It would be nice but I am sure that is too easy. May just have to make it or setle for what I can get.

Mike, Roy used Allen Grove brackets on his 46. He said you could buy them from them cheaper than you could make them. They have the complete array of brackets. right, left, top close together, top far apart, undrneath, whatever also for short or long water pumps. I think you can get them in plain or plated. Check them out I don't think you can beat them. Go to our company reviews page and go to Allen Grove Components and read what Roy says about them.

Question

just looking at a new PAW cat they have one pretty cheap think its $9.00 BUT looks easy to build your own. see if I can make one here and be usable for a diagram?
nope sorry can't get it to work. looked like the old gen bracket . looked like they cut off the end to the front. left the two bolt holes. took the front ear turned it around pointing to the back. welded with the opening of the two ear spacing set to fit the alt you will use. sound usable? you probably have one that came on your!

Go to a chevy dealer and talk to them about the bracket, They should have a book that shows all the brackets and what model they go to.


just a thought

I fab'd. almost everything, crossmembers, engine mounts, seat frames etc., on my '31 Tudor. I went with Alan Grove Components for the alternator bracket.

Their parts are reasonably price and are precision fabricated steel, not the polished billet pretty boy crap. The parts fit great and belt alignment is excellent.
