I have a 68 engine going in a 69. It has no accessory holes in the heads. Electric water pump. Power steering situated low on driver's side. Headers. I have heard that the belt driven accessories should be on opposite sides to avoid crank loading. With the lower block bolt holes spoken for by the pwr. steering pump, and only the 4 water pump mounting bolts in the neighborhood, I'm not quite sure what I should be figuring off of. I could use some advice on this one. Also any leads on distributors of appropriate brakets. Thanks. Bruce

Nice stuff on their site. But all of the brackets that I saw seem to rely on the accessory holes in the head, or else take the space that the power steering pump will be in. Still scratching my head. Thanks for the lead.

i don't think i'd worry too much about crank loading- if it was a problem, my 94 Caprice wouldn't have all the accessories (AC, alt, ps pump, and tensioner) on the passenger side driven by one belt.

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?
