PS cradle mounting question for BB(396) '68
« on: April 05, 2006, 01:41:13 AM »
 Re: The AIM (p.375, N40 A6)
 
  ...I just purchased a power steering pump cradle (supposedly) for a '68 BB, ...however it is my suspicion it's for a SB.
  ON the 'backside' of the cradle that mounts against the block, ...aren't the bolt holes of the bracket (one at the very top and another roughly centered in the back) supposed to line up with the two threaded holed in the block itself?
   The cradle I recieved appears like the bracket in the AIM, ...however the distance between the holes in the bracket is LESS than the center to center distance of the threaded holes in the block. (...On the bracket I have the back side hole spacing measures approx. 1 5/8" center to center, ...were on the block itself I measure approx. 2 1/4" space for the holes I believe the cradle mounts to)
 
  Thanks in advance for any information.

For a BB 2 1/4 " is correct.
