:confused: I'm desperate!! I put a 396 in my 66 EL with a-c (pass Side) alt (drivers Side) and power steering pump. My problem is the power steering unit hits the alt brackets. It has Alan grove outer brackets short water pump. It seems the only other choice is the $2k march set-up. This is the only thing holding up my swap and I need to get this thing DONE. Has anyone run into the same issue's? and if so what di you do to fix. Like I said I'm desperate i need to complete this ASAP. Still has to go to body shop and be there by March 1st. Thanks for your time I appreciate it. --Bob

Which water pump do you have? You mention the bracket for a short pump. It sounds like you have the wrong lower bracket. Do you have a photo you can send?

this may help, Volvo yes Volvo uses Saginaw power steering. AND a remote resevore (sp?). It won't be stock but your not going for that, it seems like. Mid 70's 240s are the best cars to look for. When I put a small block in my son's 242, between the Volvo and the Chevy parts I allready layin' around it turned sorta factory lookin'. P/S included.
