I finished my alternator bracket except for the right bolts. The damper that is in the pictures is a slip fit mock up damper. This is the SFI damper that BHJ made me that I clearanced the bracket for. The alternator is about 1 1/2" further forward than stock. It is very strong. I came out pretty good for a guy just winging it. Thank you for your time.

Thanks. Here is a better picture of how it works. I don't know what those holes in the block are for but they sure are handy. I will probably use the ones in the same place on the other side to mount the oil pump. That is a Mechman custom built alternator and the round part where the bolt goes through was amazingly round and consistent so I bored the hole a few thousand's bigger and it is really rigid side to side even without being tightened down.

I'm starting to feel a little less than adequate on the alternator bracket I just made!

My door is always open. When I get it done maybe we could meet at a vintage drag event and I'll let you drive it if you want to. I will be able to tailor the power output to the track with these strange things called a clutch and gas pedal. I want to be fully involved in the driving process. I know I could save a couple of tenths with an automatic and a two step but that's just not for me. To each their own.
