I relocated my alternator to the right side. This was an afternoon job. As far as the powersteering pump, the lower bracket was fine. I fabricated an upper bracket out of the long hockey stick style alternator bracket. This gave me enough room for adjustment of the powersteering pump. The chrome header bracket just didn't work well.

Thornbe, Can You give me a bit more detail on exactly how and where You located the hockey style fabricated bracket? Did You use the bolt holes on the front of the head or???????? Also did You have to change the pulleys? Upper and lower pulleys? Thank You Loner

I had the same problems with a 66 El Camino. The alternator was OK but it would throw the p/s belt under hard acceleration. The "universal" alternator bracket made by Cyclone raised the alt. about 1". Made a bracket that went from the water pump to the front of the power steering pump. Also made a 3/8" thick bracket to drop the p/s rear adj. bracket.
