power steering alignment problem

I have a 1970 GMC C2500. I am converting it over to a long water pump. I have the alternator bracket mounted with the alternator. I have the waterpump and crankshaft pulleys mounted. However I am in a delima with the power steering pump alignment.

I have a long water pump, a two groove crank pulley with the waterpump and alt ont he outer groove leaving the inner groove for the PS pump.

I am using this bracket:

However I cannot get my pump to line up. The pumps pulley lines up with the center of the two grooves on the crank pulley. I was told by a friend I would be able to use the trucks stock pump and it would line up fine, it does not seem like that is possible. even with the pump pressed against the block it goes not line up correctly.

What pump should I be using? off of what year and kind of car?

Might be easier to find a complete '69-up Chevy car or '73-up Chevy truck with a similar engine, and use the entire complement of accessories and brackets. BUT FIRST, look at the front of your heads and be sure you have the right accessory bolt holes on them. Some short-pump Chevy trucks may have a hole or two but they aren't in the right positions for the later long-pump brackets.
