Alternator Location and Brackets

I have a 69 Camaro and it has a 350 block with 327 heads. The issue I am having is I want to move the alternator to the passenger side and need to find the correct brackets. The heads do not have any bolt holes in them, so the bracket probably would have to be bolted to the water pump and intake manifold. Anyone have this same issue and if so, where and what alternator brackets do you have? I want to put power steering in the car and this is the first issue I have run into.

Re: Alternator Location and Brackets

This is covered in older threads
The lower alternater bracket I made up one out of scrape 5mm plate and got it chromed
Bolts to the 2 water pump bolts, with a u to get around the high part of the water pump.
And use the std top bracket that bolts to inlet etc
Never had an issue in the last 20 yrs.

Re: Alternator Location and Brackets

Didn't the 69 have the alternator on the passenger side from the factory? 67 and 68 alternator was on the drivers side.

Re: Alternator Location and Brackets

Yes, 69 was the first year for long water pump and passenger side alternator.

The OE mounting setup had a lower bracket that bolts to the water pump on one end, and has a through bolt to the head that the alternator slides over. The upper mount bolts to the water pump and one of the intake manifold bolts, and then the bolt at the top of the alternator goes through the slot in the upper bracket.

Re: Alternator Location and Brackets

I have used an old smog pump bracket that mounts to the right lower front
motor mount holes with a small spacer and a short adjuster strap to the water
pump. I think a short pwr/stg belt may fit. It works good and is down out of the way.

I was wondering if someone would notice..
I have posted in the last few yrs several engine pics and no one has ever noticed or asked before..

Notice..no fuels lines...no fuel pump
That is the secret to a 13 sec approc 11:1 compression daily driver car that does just over 30 mpg
here it is with no air filter.
An older pic ..lines not laid out or stuff cleaned up.


Wonder who knows what it is?

Re: Alternator Location and Brackets

How does it run on Propane? What did it take to make the swap. How long does it last before you have to fill the tank again? Does it run solely on Propane or does it still use gas as well? Is that a carb or what? It doesn't look like a 4BBL. What is that?
