    I found this link to a really cool and inexpensive way to mount the alternator on a 6.0 motor. Do any of you know of any issues with this setup on my 70??? Please respond soon...I plan on ordering the parts Monday. I was looking at my car, and the only thing I can think of is the steering gear box. My car is a NON power steer car. Let me know guys, Thanks

    Not sure until mockup, but I'm guessing you might have issues with the steering linkage..don't know for sure though

    it looks like the gto lower mount alt bracket to me. if it is then the only thing u have to watch for is the steering pitman arm. the sometimes don't clear.

    Do you guys think there is enough belt wrap to keep everything working as it should?

    Yea, I dont have power steering or A/C....which makes it kinda hard to route a belt.
