March aluminum pulley #1810 being used on 68 Lincoln 460 with crank driven power steering

Alright, so I have this 68 460 and the pulleys appear to be different than that of a 1970 or so 460. I got a set of these March pulleys last week. After doing some research online, Summit claims that they can be used on a 1968 460. The exception, a 1970 power steering pump must be used. Is the 1970 longer? Anyway, would there be any reason as to why this would not work with the crank driven power steering? Only thing that I could possibly see as an issue is the 1968 timing cover to 1970 water pump. Do you know if any of this would work together?

Sorry you said PS bracket. I will have to check for that. Someone else may want the alternator bracket it has a real low price on it so far.

I think I got this all figured out.  I am unable to compare stuff at this point, just look at pictures online.  To answer my original question, I think I can use these March pulleys.  If so, then I will be ecstatic.  

I was getting all hung up on this crank pulley.  It is different than the 70 style that uses the damper and pulley.  Then it dawned on me, since the March site refers to using the 70 style water pump, which is longer than the compact pump of the 68-69, I should be able to mount a 1970 pump (longer) which pushes the pulley outward.  Then, I will need to slip on the 70 style damper onto crank snout.  The bolt would go on to tighten as normal.  Then I would mount March pulley to damper and water pump.  These should theoretically line up...  theoretically....

If all this bolts together properly, I will be a happy camper.  I dont see why it wouldnt.  Then I can use these..

Well like I said you were making this more complicated then it is.
As long as you have space in the front of the vehiicle for the radiator/fan to clear it should not be a problem.

You're right. I was over complicating things.

I don't know what diameter your crank and water pump pulleys are but a lot of those are reduction deals. You may not like how they cool in traffic, I know I did not like them on my sports car and put a larger crank pulley back on it.
