PS Pump & Alternator pics?

I have been through this many times on SB Chevys, now time to learn on the Pontiac... I am trying to locate a "matching set" of alternator & PS brackets for my 72 400 with 5c heads. I think I have found what I need, but installed pictures would be worth 10,000 words!

Would anyone be willing to post a few snap shots and close ups of their installed Alt & PS pump & brackets? I dont have access to any pontiacs in the area, and the motorhead neighbor kids are working on... you guessed it, SB chevys.

Thanks much!

no such time as matching sets of alt and ps pulleys on this generation pontiacs. they run on separate belts since 65 since they are not related. alt pulley has been same for years. now brackets can be year \ model specific, so no such general pics.

Wanted to bump this up to see if anyone has a couple of close-up pics on how their alternator & ps pump is mounted with an early 70s engine... I now have a "matching" set of brackets as shown in the picture, but for example, i see no way that the rear alternator bracket will work with my alt... Maybe I have a differnent style of alt? Current config, someone cobbled the alternator on with a front bracket like the one shown here.

In the process of adding a ps pump, so Pics would be great if anyone has them

Thanks again!

see if these help - engine on the left is 71 455 (dirty, just pulled prior to break down) I think I have more at home I will check.



Here's top view



here's the 389 that was in it the car when I bought it ...









I will look for the other pics I took to "remind myself" how to put it all back together after the rebuild.

Sorry I don't have them here.

Thanks PontiacPurr, that is exactly what I needed! For starters, the alternator on mine was mounted on the wrong side of the front bracket, and was missing the rear bracket. The thing looked completely messed up, but yet the belt somehow was aligned. this will save me some time when I start installing the PS pump next week. Just installed the pwr disc brakes, now looking forward to some fingertip steering!
