Not a chevy guy, so I ask. I have one for a small block I think. Will it work on a BBC?

sbc water pump bolt pattern is different

But, if the bracket is at least 12" wide and 6-7" tall I can redrill hole no problem..yours doesn't sandwich between the block and w/p does it?

I have one I could copy for you. I have some 10mm thick material that i used to copy it once already. Just have to skim the nut b/c they’re typically for 7/16 material I think. It would just be a rough finish, no fancy tools here.


Not sure if you need spacers too? I’ve never had spacers, just used bushings/standoffs on the bolts with a dry block. I’m probably going to make some soon to set one up wet.

Nope. Where it it is no wider than where it bolts to water pump h oles, other than top where idler pulley goes.
