Yup 280zcar, just like you said, mine is made by Alan Grove bracket too. Great design but you have to use a long water pump.

Yeah. I should have mentioned that it only works with a long water pump.
I love it. It tucks the alternator in nicely and makes it all appear a little more compact.

I think I have inadvertently "sold" at least 6 of these brackets now. haha

Jeez Tyson, it looks so nice, all the trouble, that sux.

My build has been at the rod shop getting metal work done since Sep 08. Had to switch cars midstream. So I'm working on car #2 now. Keep a good attitude bro, it'll turn out amazing sooner or later.

It seems Z's and AR's should come as a package deal.

Well yeah. Thats why I need a rollcage, so I can bolt a gun rack to it.

Got my Alan Grove alt bracket in the mail yesterday and put it in last night. Super sweet, makes you wonder why GM didn't do it that way!

PS pump is typically on the other side. At least on any vehicle I have owned.
