It is a stock ford two piece mount off of a 400 or 460, don't remember. Alternator is a GM 1 wire, 10si I believe, rebuilt to 100 amp, goes to 6ga wire to trunk mounted solenoid or cutoff, have to look tonight. Thinking of going back to 3 wire alternator because volts go down quite a bit when fuel pump, fans, lights, waterpump are all on. The 1 wire setup does not maintain 14v like "normal" when engine is running. Am using a ford contour v6 dual fan setup, fits early mustang radiators nicely, have each fan wired to a toggle separately. I think the alt bracket came from the 1971 LTD wagon 429 I originally swapped into the car back in 1983.

My 1972 429 alt. bracket looks like that to. Thanks for the tip on the water pump, I better bring it with me when I go to get the new one, always suspected it was the short one with the fan so close to the A/C compressor.

Thanks. I feel like I built 2 or 3 engines with how many times we had this one together and apart. Guys that build engines for living have to really know their stuff to do it efficiently.

I run the alt belt on the very inside crank pulley, the stock damper was not the grooved style like the short w/p has (on this setup)

The short w/p's came on I think 70 down with the pulley made into the damper. Mine is a 69.. the rest with that brk. used longer spacers.

The elevation is the kicker, lose about 13% of power right off the bat.

So did you have the heads ported or did you bolt them on out the box? It's should make a ton of power either way.

Heads are unported. My plan was to get it running for couple years, then when doing freshen up, have heads and intake ported and maybe get bigger cam.

10/4. Hey on a different subject have you had problems with PhotoBucket loading pictures and do you know of a different way or if someone else can post them somehow or can it be done from a cellphone? My kid does all this kind of stuff for me and he could not come up with a way.

Unfortunately I am not very helpful with this stuff. The guy that helps me does it by opening a photo bucket app on my phone and then sign in on computer. Then you have to "move" the photos you want to "your bucket". Then click on the bottom direct link , control c (copy) then while on this website (429-460.com) you click the small blue box, then control v (paste) . I have the actual step by step at work, so this may be wrong, will check tomorrow or Saturday when I am back there
