hello camaro people!
long time reader.... first time user...
My project is a 1967 camaro rs that had a 327
the upgrade is a 396 swap.
Since I did not have all the mounting brackets, the "quest" was on to complete the project.
The problem that I have encountered is that
...once the alterator(mounted left side) bolted to a bracket (purchased at a swap).. the alternator pulley is off by the width of the pulley. The altrnator would have to be bolted (at least)1/2 inch outward to line up with the crank pulley.
The is a casting number on the bracket from the swap meet is 3902102. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hey sounds like that you have a alt. bracket for a short water pump & a bottom pulley for a long style water pump.

further info:
The water pump is the short style pump, and the pulley on the harmonic damper is flush with the damper face. The cast mounting braket located the alternator rearward aligning inward on the damper. I first thought that the balancer was not pressed on far enough, but the water pump pulleys line up with the damper pulley.

FWIW,It sounds like what I ran into while putting my 327 back together.I am not the original owner so I don't know what pulleys are on there ,but I had to install spacers about 1/2" thick behind my alternator brackets to get them to line up with the crank/waterpump.Can you do this as a last resort?
