I'm considering changing the flimsy stamped lower alternator bracket on my 71 sb cpe w/ ps & ac. Presently the bottom is stamped and pivot bolt goes through it, through alt and into ex manifold. I'm thinking of using cast bracket from 68-72 sb PU Trk as shown below...Has anyone tried this???...if so, does it bolt up or interfere? I don't have the brackets yet and motor's out of car. Thanks,
I would take some measurements first.

I helped a friend change a head mount bracket (like what you are going to install) to a manifold one-piece bracket, because he had a broken screw in the head and a cracked bracket and could not find a replacement.

He had two manifolds from different years, and only one would line up correctly with the pulley.
