66 vs 67 BB PS lower pump bracket

Can someone please provide the part number for a 67 BB lower PS pump bracket?

My 66 AIM tells me that this bracket is 3873845 and I want to know if this part number is the same for the 67+ BB's. There are eBay vendors that say the 65/66 BB PS bracket is different than the 67+ bracket, but I question this. I do know the 65/66 BB PS upper pump bracket is different than the 67+ upper bracket so maybe there is a different lower bracket too.

I have the 66 / 67 Chevelle reference CD, but this does not provide me this part number for a 67 BB (even though it does provide the 66 BB PS bracket), and I don't own a 67 AIM.

My 67 AIM shows the same part number for the lower bracket. 3873845.

Owning a Chevelle project is like having a giant-size piggy bank that you keep pouring money into....but you can't get it back out.

The lower bracket (and upper bracket) that MOST places market as "65-68" or "66-68" are NOT correct for '66. Not sure about '67...

Its a little difficult to visually see the differences, unless you are well versed OR you see them side-by-side. The correct '66 bracket is shorter than the common version "everyone" is selling...

The incorrect is technically functional, but some have found fitment issues.

IIRC, there is a company reproducing the correct upper and lower brackets for '66, but they are pricey. I have only seen them offered on eBay. The company is Goat Hill Classics or something similar...

Yes, this is why I am asking this part number question to see if there is actually a difference in lower brackets per year as claimed by these eBay ads. (I never take eBay ads as the definitive truth)

According to Randy the 67 part number is the same as the 66 part number, so 66 & 67 are the same. I guess I should have included asking for the part number for the 68 bracket to see if it too is the same part number???

I do know about Goat Hill Classics and their expensive reproductions. I'm not picking on them as they have developed the tooling and are making these parts available, and I'm sure selling at low volume numbers because of low demand. I get it, but I'm trying to find a more appropriately priced correct used factory bracket for my 66 if I can.

I do know about the 65/66 upper bracket being a totally different animal, so it would not have surprised me if the lower bracket was different too, but it appears at least the 66 & 67 lower brackets are the same.
