Alternator bracket spacer
« on: February 17, 2012, 02:18:21 PM »
Please see picture of spacer located between upper alternator bracket and water pump observed on a 69 Camaro small block.
Does this look correct and was this spacer originally installed at the factory?

Nope! No spacer for the upper bracket.

Its a water pump housing with the mount for the alternator bracket located like a 76-84 small block - they were set back closer to the block and use a different upper bracket.  Using a 69 bracket, you need a spacer on that pump, like in the picture.
