    Hey guys, I have a 73 camaro with a big block 502 in it. I'm having issues trying to get the right power steering brackets for it because stock big block brackets put the pump too close to the steering box. I've tried 2 different brands of brackets and can't seem to find anything specified for my application. Any help appreciated.

    Have you looked at Alan Grove?? I just installed an A/C bracket and a PS bracket. Both fit fine and no clearance issue. But I have a SBC, not at BBC.

    Same here on a sbc, had problems with p/s brackets getting out of align and slinging belts. I went to an Alan Grove setup, problems gone. They're proud of their stuff, but it works.

    Do you want stock and or aftermarket like a March set up. I believe up to an 1980 Chevy pick up will work.

    I called Allan grove and they said they didn't offer anything for my application. I can't recall the brand names of the two I tried but they were stock style. I'll honestly try anything that should work.

    I have a bracket set that looks just like the ones in your link but they seem to put the pump too close to my steering box. Any recommndations on a bracket set that would mount the pump a little higher?

    With the 502 being a "tall deck",your in non stock territory.
    Sorry I can't help.
