Re: Power steering pump bracket (rear)

The bracket you are showing must go ON THE FRONT of the motor mount, and not behind it as you are showing in your picture (top, third from left). It is the bracket used for a 327 application using non interlocking motor mounts.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

˄˄˄˄ This is the bracket used on 1967-68 Camaros with 327's. Your picture clearly shows that it won't work with an interlocking motor mount.

Back in the early 1970's Chevrolet had a problem with 1960's cars breaking motor mounts. When the drivers side mount would break engine torque would lift the LH side of the engine and the throttle rod would jam open. There were several serious accidents. The high horsepower cars of the late 1960's made the problem worse. Chevrolet had a massive recall campaign to deal with the problem which had the dealers install this cable kit to keep the engines from lifting when a motor mount failed.




Sometime later interlocking motor mounts became available which keeps the engine from lifting when a motor mount separates without the need of the cables.

I wanted the safety of of the interlocking motor mounts so I installed the 302/350 power steering bracket on my 327.

I drove it for the first time in 1972 when I was 15.

Better looking than a '56 Ford or Plymouth.
