SBC - power steering bracket

Hey guys, check out my thread.

http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ge=1&reverse=1

I need to know how many different types of power steering brackets there are for the SBC.

I need a power steering bracket for my 1963 Parisienne (Laurentian running gear).

I think there is short and long, from what I have read?

I found this advertised on ebay, as long as the water pump length is correct, is this all there is to it?

Don't quote me, but that sort of looks like what I remember on the last factory use of the short water pumps on 72 chevy v8 pickups. Pickups used short pumps a few years longer than cars did. 72 truck was the last, I believe.

The main bracket with an "open" hole, or hook type bolt hole, really rings a bell. The truck bracket bolted to the lower left front face of the block, on the 2 holes that would have been for 55-57 chevy front motor mounts.

There was a bizzare brace that went over to the left front side motor mount....but that long bracket you show may be different than what I recall....it's been a while....or maybe your pic does not show an adjustment slot in that brace??

Bringing this one back to life guys, as I need to get this in the next week or two.

How can I tell what style power steering bracket I need? Do I need a shot of the engine?

There are two different lengths of water pumps (short and long), and the power steering pump bracket must match. The original on your '63 vehicle would have been a short water pump and PS pump bracket.

I've never seen a bracket like in your picture, but that doesn't mean it isn't the right one. Most brackets have two pieces.
-- One part bolts to the lower driver's side of the block, and it provides a cradle and pivot point for the pump housing.
-- The other bracket will bolt to the exhaust manifold front bolt or to the block, and it is the bolt that holds the pump in place after you rotate the pump and tension the belt.

I have pictures from the repair manual for my '75 with a long water pump, but you need the equivalent diagram for a short pump. My diagrams show slightly different brackets for SBC and BBC, so they aren't universal.

Hey guys I thought I would post these pics as this might help identify things.

The engine is not from this car, but the pump did come with the car, so I think it should be the right one.

Can anybody tell me if these parts match eachother, and whether it's a long or a short arrangement?

I'll try and help if I can... first off I need the following info...

motor (350 chevy?)

Short or long water pump, look here:

http://www.speedwaymotors.com/LONG-S...INUM,1827.html

http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Small-...umps,1819.html

Next need to know where you are trying to mount the pump... there are several ways... head mount, hang off the w/p etc.

Do you have any parts to the system at all? pump, gear box,hoses?

What is your budget... is there junk yards in Australia wher you can get the parts?

Get this info and I'll see if I can help.

Hi there!

Thank you very much for your response.

I thought I would be able to identify from the pictures I had what one it was but I guess I will have to remove the pulley (the car isn't at my house).

If you look in the second photo you can see just on the right side of the photo there is two bolt holes which are fresh. My brother's car (he has a 1964 model Parisienne, I have a 63) has a bracket on it which bolts on here

I have the hoses coming from the rack, and also in the last phot, the pump that came with the car, which should be correct.

I've found brackets on eBay however I don't know which one I need...

Thanks so much for your input

Ok I got the photos,

Here is the water pump.

I will be running only an alternator and poewr steering.

Judging from the pump I have, what type of bracket do I need? Has anyone got a picture of what I need?

That's a short W/P.

Mount the brackets to the P/S pump temporarily and hold it to the block.

IIRC, the P/S belt will line up with the rear W/P pulley groove.

Thanks mate for this info.

But this is the thing - I don't have a power steer pump bracket - I need to find out if I need anything special so that I can buy one.

Is it just "one size fits all"?
