Short Water pump, AC driver/Alternator passenger

I am taking the accessories from my 305 (V belt) to put them on a 350 on the engine stand. I need a new waterpump for the 350, so I was looking at the 305 to make sure I matched.

Backwards from everything I read--I have a short water pump on the 305 (measured twice), but the AC is on the driver's side above the power steering & the alternator is on the passenger side. Ever seen this before? Has my Camaro been 'rigged'?

Re: Short Water pump, AC driver/Alternator passenger

I'm not real sure what you are asking or what year Camaro you are talking about.

The ac compressor was on the passenger side with the alternator & power steering on the driver's side in 67 & 68. In 69 they moved the ac compressor over to the driver side, & put the alternator on the passenger side.

Here is a good shoot of a 69 ac on ebay:

It ma have been 'rigged' to work.
Yes, '69's are as you & 327 described, are configured this way, A/C comp on drvr side and alt on pass side.

If it worked on the 305, it should work on the 350. Did you misplace a water pump pulley spacer, maybe? Could be the 'rig' to work.
