Small block without acc holes?

I now have the 461 double hump heads bolted up to the long block now the trouble is how will I mount my alternator and powersteering pump. The plan was to find a old alternator or generator bracket for an engine with no acc holes. And as far as powersteering I've been told the best way to go is to make a L shaped bracket that bolts up to the first header bolt and wraps around to the powersteering pump.
Has anyone used this fix? Or any others and could you post pictures or sketches if you have them. Thanks!

Alt. and P.S. brackets

I've just finished a 1992 S10 with a 355 SBC with 461 heads. I used the original Alt. brackets and fabricated one from the lower W.P. bolt to the back of the alt. where the bottom bolt goes. I used an old style P.S. pump that bolts to the W.P. And an L shaped bracket like you mentioned to the first header bolt. So far no problems. I'll try to get some pics for you.
