well, 3 steps forward, then 2 steps back...
the high mount alt looks ez to get to but look at my upper hose, impossible, and the alt was crowding the batt.
it had to go. looked good on the floor !!

it took hours to get the right bolts and spacers to move it down where my old one was.
the serpentine stuff made it high. had to toss the brackets and make up some bolted assm.
not done yet. still 2 serp belts, could not make one do it... tried...
its not pretty but its hidden. pix tomorrow...

If I'm not mistaken, I believe won't a 3G alternator fit in the bracket the way that you've got that setup? The pulley arrangement looks like the one I've got on the 97 460 I got for my pony and it came with a 3G. Not trying to make more work for you or anything, but if the bolt holes are 180 deg apart I think it'll fit if you want to upgrade it at some time. All you'd need would be the pigtails for it, I got mine from Amazon on the cheap and did a retrofit on the 351M that's in mine now. Looks like you've been getting a lot of work done on it! I've been following your thread for any helps I can get for mine, cheers and good luck!!
