Just curious what you guys are running. There is no alternator mount provisions on the weiand 7530 I am using. My old alternator mount bolted to one of the thermostat housing studs, but this new intake has the thermostat sitting a lot higher than before, so it won't work. Thanks!

Summit has an inexpensive copy of the March brackets. Don't know about quality of the Summit stuff. Or try here http://www.alangrovecomponents.com/Catalog.htm

just take the factory bracket and cut the mounting ear off- seen that done dozens of times. what you then end up is just like the aftermarket setups, but cheaper. you could even weld up an end to mount it to the water outlet, if you feel like doing more work than necessary.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Question

Don't you need to add a stud-headed bolt at the top W/P drivers side location to do this right when you trim the bracket, too???


Or am I thinking of the pass. side bolt and the bat. cable???

I have the Alan Grove item. It nicely places the alternator tight to the water pump just below the pass head. Allows a short belt too.

Cool

The '88 Monte Carlo I have has an Edelbrock manifold on it. OEM was to the t/s housing, w/pump, and to the alt adjusting slot. I used the w/pump point and left the t/s stud out of the picture and have no problem with belt alignment or jumping.

I just went through the same problem. My stock alternator location was using the water neck mount.

After alot of looking I found two good systems. One is the Alan Grove mount for $35. For $14 more you can get the entry level March Performance mount.

I went With the March Performance mount and like it alot. I paid $49 at Summit part number MCH-20123. For another $20 you can get it polished and clear coated. For a bit more they have one that has more of a cool design.
