    So I was wondering if I can fit a power steering pump with a 454 in my 81 and with long tube headers, it seems like a tight fit. Also will the same alternator bracket and power steering bracket from my 350 work with my 454?

    Any other tips related BBC swaps in late 2nd gens is appreciated

    Thanks!:)

    You can use the same alt. and pump but will need to get the correct brackets

    Brackets are entirely different.
    I highly recommend using the Alan Grove brackets for this swap. Best quality brackets I've ever found and reasonably priced
    The Mid-Mount Alternator bracket is PN 225R
    The PS bracket is PN 407L
