Question

I am installing a 454 in my 67 camaro convertable. The motor came out of a 1978 3/4 ton truck( pass engine). I am installing the eldenbrock RPM stuff. My problem is there is no hole in my Moruso long water pump to mount the alt brackets. What do I need to do? Someone must have ran into this problem before... IDEAS?

Why are you using the long water pump in a '67? They take the short pump. The alternator mounts on the driver's side.

I figured I would leave the set up the way it was in the 78'. Should I change it to the driver side? What is involved to do that?

Changing to a drivers side alternator bracket would mean switching to a short water pump and all the assorted brackets and pulleys. Unless you are after the "restored" look I would leave what you have in place. Call Moroso and see if they can help, possibly someone here or Team Chevelle might be able to help. Good luck.
