my alternator seems to be vibrating an awful lot. does anybody have a picture of what the stock alternator bracket should look like? my lower alternator bracket is shared with the powersteering pump which i think may not be strong enough.

is there an aftermarket bracket that i should get or should i just try and find one in a junkyard or something?

sorry, probably should have mentioned that. smallblock 307 (bout as small as they get). its on the passenger side too. i heard somewhere that they get switched around sometimes because of ac and such (which i don't have)

Some small block SWP cars came with a pretty good upper alternator bracket. If you look in a Trans Dapt catalog under alternator brackets you can see a picture of one. You may still be able to find one used at a swapmeet if you don't want chrome.

I use an upper bracket from a later model car (mid-80s) on my 69, but I think my water pump is different from yours. Steve R's suggestion is probably best.
