Pontiac alternator and power steering pics (boring)

Here are some photos of alternators and power steering pumps on 60's and 70's Pontiacs. Not too exciting, unless you're trying to figure out how the brackets bolt together on your car.

The following 4 photos are of my '66 GTO, but the engine is a '72 400, so the brackets and power steering pump are 70's style.

The rest of the pictures are from various Pontiacs I saw at Tiger Run.

THANX, I NEEDED THIS. PONTIACS HAVE CHANGED THE BRACKET CONFIGURATION + THE NUMBER OF WATER PUMP BOLTS OVER THE YEARS. I ENDED UP WITH BRACKET FOR 1968,1969, & 1974. NOTHING WOULD WORK WITHOUT BIG MODIFICATIONS. I AM STILL TRYING TO BOLT THE ALT. AND POWER STEERING JUMP TO THE PONT. ENGINE AND THEN ADAPT TO THE EL CAMINO BODY. "AIN'T" HOT RODIN FUN ! ! !

I exchanged motors from 389 to a 400. The alternator nor the power steering unit matched. Your pictures helped greatly. I have some clear ideas how to make my original alternator and power steering fluid pump work - with out spending ridicules money - for guys like me who don't have it to spend, and just want to get our old car running. Keep up the good work!

OMG, this was a HUGE help. Thank you for posting these pictures. I had all the brackets and I was struggling how to fit it all together in my build- I am in the process of pulling out a SBC 350 and installed a Pontiac 400 in my Firebird. :)
