I'm getting ready to order a vintage air system for a 69 coupe I'm working on. I know its not the original engine. I noticed they have them for short and long water pump big blocks. It looks like it has a fair amount of room between the back of the pump and the cam cover like the long pump sb engines. Can anyone help me out. I just want to make sure I order the right one.

You're discribing a long water pump there, they are much more common than short pumps. Short pumps are so close to the timing cover that you can't get a finger between the rear of the pump and the front cover.

The long pumps use alternator brackets that sit on the passanger side, short pump alternator setups are on the driver's side

hope this is helpful
