I have a 62 327, headers, PS and factory A/C. The alternator was mounted high on the driver's side. I've been dealing with some belt squealing and in trying to fix that I think I had too much tension on the alternator or had some alignment problems and the bracket that mounts to the header broke. This left me searching for a solution that I thought would be easy - turns out not so much.
I bought the MR Gasket brackets (9852 and 9850) and thought I'd be good to go (I have a CS single wire alternator) but the Alt hung too low to the wheel well and would not articulate upwards so I could get a belt to reach.
I went back to the look at the bracket that was on there and noticed they (prior owners) had fabbed their own version of the 9850 and made some risers that connected to the Alternator - frankly, it was a couple of poorly cut and drilled pieces of steel but somehow it worked.
I got all new locking nuts and bolts, sprayed up the brackets and added them to the 2 Mr Gasket brackets. I had to use a 58" belt to fit properly as I could not get the prior 54" belt on even tho these brackets seem to put the alt in the same location. The 9852 allows you to slide back and forth for proper alignment, but with the 2 chunks of steels being separate, I think it allows the alt to twist a bit.
So, my question - what does this 64 bracket look like? I can't seem to find it online. I was thinking I might have a bracket made that has a round tube spacer that would connect to the 9850 with a 1.5" riser that would connect to the alternator and have it chromed but am curious what a properly mounted Drivers side all looks like.
Thanks and sorry for the long post!
