So, since my ole gal has some vibration, and the chromie bracket was never installed properly, my alternator now has a home on the floor of the garage, and half the bolt that goes into the passenger head is still in the head. Anyone know if the alternator will just bolt up to the holes where the a/c compressor is now (driver side. V belts)? I know they make a bracket kit for that, but I'm trying to keep this fix cheap. Also, if anyone has a stock bracket layin around let me know.. Thanks! ****Image addeed**** Ok, so here's the problem. As you can see, the hole closest to the thermostat doesnt line up..... Never did. PO had it this way too. Got a stock bracket from an 85 camaro that is the same size as the chromie bracket i have, and it doesnt line up either. I am going to the yard tomorrow, so does anyone know what year SBC bracket I need? HELP!!
