f body brackets are the preferred method but they are hard to find and expensive. I used the truck bracket but i cut off the alt top and kept the bottom part for PS pump. I moved the alt to the pass side in front of the head. I used a 98 f body water pump. the pulley is attached with four bolts so I went ahead and used spacers on it with longer bolts so that it will work with the truck accessories

I used my old third gen alt mounted to one of the tabs on the water pump. then I made two brackets to hold it in place.
