Not sure how much higher the earlier pumps are mounted. Maybe 2".

Careful when experimenting with pulley diameters and fan speed.
Too fast and you get pump cavitation, bubbles and overheating.

You can also drop the radiator down by drilling new mounting holes in the radiator brackets about 1" above the original ones.
My radiator has a taller core, so it looks like original after the mod.
Don't know if the taller rad came 3/4 or 1 ton trucks, but is' a perfect fit on the 1/2 ton.

Also replaced my old inefficient fan with a 18" low-profile flex-fan.

Hey Denny.....just took a couple pics of the plate and the instruction sheet. It's on page 12 of my webshots "shoebox". Click on "Full Size" in the upper right hand corner and you should be able to read the info sheet. Hope this helps.

Thank you teach! That's exactly what I was looking for. Measurements can all come off the block and pump. Iím fortunate enough to have a pretty decent machine shop at my disposal, old Bridgeport and lathe, etc. So I printed out the pics last night but havenít had a chance to look it over yet this morning. How thick was the plate by the way, and Iím assuming that it was steel, right??
Thanks again

Are you gonna knock off a few adapters on your own? The guy who first designed them sometimes posts on this website.I don't know if the plate design is protected by law,but you should keep it low key,ya think?

You can't make the plate for the $40.00 going price. You can spend an afternoon on a bridgeport for free but you need a 3/4" X 82 deg. countersink to recess the holes for the old pump. If you don't have that in your hand good luck finding one for less than $40.00. As well the plate is cut as one continuous profile and doesn't require the handwork a homemade one needs. Jim Carter has the plate in his catalog and I'm sure a few other vendors will carry it if if demand goes up so it's no secret. I'm not advertising but this is the best picture of the plate:
