My thoughts were, if you have to modify a bracket, a short WP-type bracket would be easier to work with than the long bracket that relies on other brackets that mount to the front of the head in order to mount the pump.
If that bracket on ebay will work (ask the guy for the specifics on it- maybe a photo of it mounted to an engine), then it would be a way to go.
