Alternator Bracket?

I am having trouble finding an alternator bracket for the passenger side with a long water pump and no boss on the intake manifold. I have heard there is one that bolts to the thermostat housing. Anyone know where to find this?

You'll definately find the thermostat mounted bracket in a 1973 Nova, so check out 70's era gm cars in the yards. You might need to run a few spacers on the water pump ear for this bracket (about 1/2" worth). Obviously depends on the year and app of the water pump.

Got one on a 72 Chevelle. If I recall (I am not home now) the thermostat stud has threads on both sides. Grab it if it does. That way you can evenly snug down the thermostat, then put the bracket on.
