I've got a new ZZ4 crate motor in my '72 Z28, and I can't install the
lower power steering bracket because it hits the timing chain cover
(which is a new design). I also noticed that the mounting boss on the
water pump (with the bolt hole) is slightly different, such that the
pulleys don't line up quite right even if I could put the bracket on.
Does anyone know of a bracket that will fit the new motors and the old
I called the dealer where I bought the motor, to see if they had a
recommendation for another bracket, but their suggestion was to
replace the water pump and timing chain cover on my new motor! I would
much rather just have a custom bracket made, if that's what it's going
Thanks for your help.
