No your pump will not work, neither will the other pulleys. You have encountered the biggest downfall associated with using pre 70's heads. You can fabricate a bracket of sorts that uses the front intake manifold bolt and the front exhaust bolt on the alternator side. I have never seen one commercially available but I've made them from 1/4" stock, a lot of labor and some torch work. DO those heads have hard exhaust seats? If not you will also have durability problems.
