    Only one place..

    The Dealer is the only other option other than a boneyard..Unless a place like LMC has them...Call a dealership's parts dept.--I bet they have or can get one,and usually they are not too expensive..I bought one for a 454 from the dealer because no one had a used one available..it only cost 11 bucks !..I thought they'ed want 50 with my luck!.. same deal when I needed a plow pump bracket for a small block--wasted half a day making one,and I later learned the dealer sells them for about 15 bucks! :blush: :surepal: :screwy: :crazy:

    Post up in the wanted section . Many of us have brackets lying around .

    What was wrong with the original bracketry ?

    All of your external accessories and brackets will bolt on to the new engine if you replace a 305 ( assume you had ) with a 350 . They are same externally .
    If you had a diesel , then you need brackets .

    Replacement brackets won't work either then .

    You need to get a bracket from the aftermarket to work with headers . Its only for the back bracket , you can keep the front bracket on the pump .

    Try Jegs or Summitt
