    I bet that you used the wrong bolt on the uper/pas side of the PS bracket.

    Is the pass side of the PS pump pulley too close the the intake?
    Is a standard bolt holding the above mentioned part of the bracket?
    It should be a piece of allthread w/ a built in nut about 2/3 the way down.
    Install the allthread to the head
    Install PS pump bracket to allthread
    Put a nut on the allthread bolt to hold the bracket in place.

    No actually I'm an idiot!!! there is a 3/8" spacer that I put in the wrong location. I put it on the stud on the back of the pump, 2 yrs. ago, so I wouldn't lose it. Only took a day to figure out the proper location of the spacer.
