Posted in suspension section & no replies, thought i'd try here

There are no mounting holes to mount my power steering bracket.
Anyone ever come across this before ?
The boss ares is there - Can I drill them out & tap them without causing problems ? :(

Thanks

I had to do this on a 70 350 Monte Carlo engine I put into a 55 Chevy. The pads were there for the front motor mounts but not drilled. I ordered a set of mounts and bolts and measured the bolt , put tape on the drill bit slightly longer than the bolt. I drilled and taped and it worked fine. Just take your time.

Thanks

Did you start small & step up in drill size or can you just drill it to the need size for the tap ?
I just used the size needed for the tap. Its only cast iron and drills easily. Go slow and don't force the bit. Tap it and you will be fine...

Drilled,tapped & bracket mounted:)
Rick (Camaro67 rcl),

I just found your post. I am having the same issue with power steering pump brackets. What brackets did you use? Ricks 1st gen has 327 and 350 brackets and I am not sure what the difference is.

How deep did you drill and what size or hole did you drill?
