What year car. There is a really good GM bracket to use on a 67 with short water pump if you have heads with mounting holes. It really depends on if you have a short water pump or long one.

There are 2 brackets needed and are available from many header mfgs. etc. I say two, because you need the one that bolts with the header to an exhaust port, and the one that attaches to your alternator and bolts to it. You may not need this one if you have your original. They are available in chrome if needed, or wanted here.

Are you using BOTH brackets ? The original would only replace the 2nd one. See link.

Part # 3071 bolts to head, by using front two bolts of the header.

Part # 3027 bolts to this bracket(3071) and to the alternator. I believe you can use the original instead of this, but you will still need to buy the one like # 3071.

i am still confused. what do you mean by two brackets. i have the upper one which is a big curved arm thing and the lower one that is what is shown in the official camaro assembly book. from what i can tell, the lower one bolts right above the exhaust manifold but i dont have any holes for it to bolt on with. maybe this helps you understand my problem better.
thanks

I'm sorry... it's really quite simple. You use your original TOP bracket, and the original lower bracket bolts to the NEW lower bracket which bolts to the front header tube to the exhaust port on the head. I'll try to find a pic for you. Anyone out there have a picture ?
