Brackets for alternator and power steering pump

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all-this is my first post here :).  I have a 1970 GTO that is getting a 455 installed ('73 block casted in October 1972 with 6X heads).  What alternator and power steering brackets do I need?  I know the brackets have to be the same year but any advice?  Thanks.

Welcome to the board.

Just to start with you would need at least items/parts 1-9 off this list from Ames Performance.

And you are correct most issues come about when you try to mix & match.

Best of luck

Hi there, when I had the alternator replaced, the bracket came as an option to it. I ordered mine online, it was an aftermarket piece (https://www.carid.com/alternators/), and there was a dropdown menu allowing to pick the options. So there I selected the bracket. Must say, it was slightly different from the OE one I had originally, though it still worked fine. That was my solution.
