Default Custom alternator bracket

Do any of you guys know of a vendor making an alternator bracket that mounts it low on the driver or pass side, with a electric w/p and no other accessories?? I have the race pump, so I can't use the w/p as a pulley. Thanks for any info.

Sorry, haven't seen one. Will a high mount work?

no, I really want to mount it down low to keep things sanitary. I might end up fabricating something, but it would be nice to just bolt something on. hmmm..

Whats wrong with the factory low mount spot on driver side?
Do you want it even lower then that again?

maybe you could use the factory a/c bracket for something... as it uses only the crank.

The factory low mount has no provision for putting tension on the belt. I am probably going to make something, I have't been able to find anything "pre-made" that will work. Its kind of weird, I'm sure quite a few people are running the race version electric water pump, I wonder what they are using for brackets?

Can you use the brackets from a truck engine?

I made the stock tensioner pully work for me. Takes about 1/2 hour, grinding wheel and a 37" belt I believe. The pic is on my web site . Good luck

pretty cool. I thought about using the tensioner but I figured less stuff spinning around on the front of the motor would be better, I got a shorter belt and more belt wrap out of the deal too. Nice website.
