The Given: 383-powered 1966 Chevelle Malibu
The Situation: Snapped Power Steering Brackets
The Result: Popeye-like forearms


On Friday, I picked up one of March Performance's P/S Brackets (P/N 20111).
This was necessitated by the jerry-rigged combination of brackets breaking.
This occurred because mechanic was in a hurry to get the car out of his
shop and forgot to put in the bolt that attaches to the front of the
pump.

(By the way -- nice piece, those...billet aluminum, looks sturdy and
brawny, but light!)


Bad News. The pump doesn't clear the steering box and I can't get the
thing mounted to the block. 3/8" and the laws of physics wouldn't be
invoked, but...there's simply no way.

Anyway, SB (et al.) -- does anyone know of an aftermarket pulley solution
(aside from March Performance and (?) Bill's Hot Rods) that might be
viable?

Much-O Gracias in advance!

Cheers!
