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.

      Three years ago my son and I drove to Nebraska to buy my first GTO. I was specifically looking for a 70-72, green project that wasn’t going to break the bank. We had a great time. The car turned out to be more work than I anticipated but it’s getting closer to paint and may see the road this year. When I get done more time I’ll start a build thread. I have tons of pictures on my Instagram page also. I use the same name on Instagram.

      Hey I have come across a '76 Trans AM I am going to "restore" I'm not completely worried about keeping it original although I am keeping any original parts I would replace; heads, cams, etc....



      Well I have the original 455 engine I need to have some work done on it, and I want to beef it up some as I know in '76 it took a huge power dive to about a 200hp engine. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or information on what kind of upgrades I could get on the engine (like aluminum heads possibly, or a better cam) and what kind of compression ratio I should get it set to. I'm under the idea that the original compression ratio is 7.6:1 which is pretty low, so what might be an ideal compression ratio? If anyone has any information that would be helpful to me that would be great.



      Thanks



      Nick
