          The longer one more towards the top....If I remember someone said to just go to autozone and get the chevy one in stock and cut it to fit. I guess Ill give that a try.

          How's your rebuild coming....?

            Had the same problem. I hit the J-yards and never found one. I fabed the brackets. It's not to hard to make.

              Hey, I gave it all a try. I am still having some issues. The bracket that adjusts the alt is broken, and I tried to fab one, but im an idiot.

              SO BUMP....anyone know where to find a bracket that wont cost so much.

                If nobody pipes up, I'll have my wife look in my parts box. I think I may have one in there. She'll more than likely send to many peices, but I'll have her look.

                It's the top mount right? If you throw a pic up of the piece you need, I'll have her log on and look at it and compare with what I have back at home.

                      Well, it looks like you've been waiting a while, and my wife left for her family reunion in Maine. Then I'll be on R&R, so she won't get home until the end of July...if you can wait that long. Then we run the possiblity I don't have it anymore, but I think I do.

                            Bracket

                            Y'all. I'm in on this. I took out the Motorcraft/ola and put in a Delco-like Load Boss from AlterStart.

                            1st, the pivot hole is smaller - I had to drill it out. Thanks to my neighbor who has a bodacious drill press and the right tools to center it up and do it straight.

                            2nd, the pivot hole is an inch shorter so I needed a new 3 inch extension from the motor to the inside edge of the pivot hole, I forget the dimension. He carved it out of bar stock, he has a big ol bodacious lathe. He is the man. Got it perfect.

                            3rd, the old adjust bracket is off by about 1/4 inch and has to be shaved to get it to bend up a little to use it. SO! I NEED THAT BRACKET or I'm gonna have to make one for the Delco. I might make SEVERAL since they do not appear to exist anywhere.

                            I'm thinking of making about 20 kits for the Motorcraft/ola to Delco swap. Think there is a market?

                              Yes...there was some upper brackets on ebay for sale that were "scrounged from a scrap yard" by a guy who knew what they were worth. He wanted too much at the time, but in hindsight i should paid it.
