I have a 67 Camaro RS. It has the original 327 with the camel hump heads (no accessory mount holes) and short water pump. I have installed headers and am in need of a solution for a reliable alternator mount. I have tried the factory stile bracket that bolts on with the header. The bolts have a tendancy to back out producing an exhaust leak, and an alternator that flopps around aimlesly. Doesn't give you a great deal of confidence for taking it on much of a cruise. Recently I tried welding that bracket to the header flange. It worked for a while but vibration must have broken one of the welds. Not a lot of space to lay down a real good bead. For wiring purposes I would like to keep it on the driver side. The car doesn't have power steering, so that side of the engine is pretty clear. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Bakes

You could try putting a stud into the head instead of using a header bolt. I've heard they are much less prone to loosening...

how about an aftermarket alternator mount that mounts the alt down low where the PS pump would normally be? they bolt to the 2 bolts on the front of the block down by the balancer. the best part is that the brackets are cheap and can be found at any circle track supplier.

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?
