SBC CHEVY 327 350 383 ALUMINUM POWER STEERING BRACKET FOR USE WITH SBC LONG WATER PUMP
PART # P-44302
There is one thing I would like to point out: you many need to use a series of washers as spacers in certain areas. This is to achieve perfect belt alignment. This mis-alignment is not necessarily anything to do with the bracket, but more a result of the pulleys not matching up exactly, or it could be due to the devices the pulleys are mounted on. Nonetheless, by using the washers as needed you will be able achieve perfect alignment, and the need for these washers may very depending on many factors.
Important note from our company president.
We have sold many of these brackets over the years. The difficulty installing them has led us away from using them on our engines and dress-up kits. This aluminum bracket also has a poorly designed way of adjusting the belt tension, and has a very short span adjustment. The chrome plated steel bracket we offer in our other listings is far superior in design and function. Belt installment and adjustment is very simple. We will continue selling these for those that feel they must have the aluminum bracket, and when our supply is gone we will no longer carry it. The part number for the replacement bracket that we now use on our engines is 3838-C and we also have another similar bracket, part number 3830-C These are both very high quality, and extremely simple to install.
The correct belt length we have found to work perfectly is a 33.5 inch belt when using our aluminum pulleys. Whatever belt your combination calls for, you'll want a size that allows you to be able to further adjust the belt to compensate for initial belt stretch. So it is advisable to be sure the belt is somewhat short enough that you still have room in the adjustment span to tighten it as it will certainly stretch a half inch or more in the first few days of running.
