Default Power Steerig Pump mounting diagram

Hello, I am having a problem with finding the right way to mount my Power Steering Pump and I will follow tonight will pics if needed. What I have right now is a Power Steering Pump with a two piece bracket, one part screws into the front of the pump and the other flat piece that bolts onto the back and the two mounting screws go threw both brackets to bolt to the block. Now I cannot find a way to actually bolt the whole thing properly to the block, am I missing a bracket piece or is there just something simple that I am missing? Or maybe some one has a diagram of how it is mounted?

Cheers
Evan

There are actually three parts to the bracket, the front, back, and a third piece that runs from a tab on the front bracket to the front bolt on the exhaust manifold. There should be a stud on the bottom large water pump bolt and a stud on the bottom front cover bolt. There is a third bolt that goes into the side of the block in front of the motor mount. There are also two spacers, one over the bottom stud on the front cover and one (about 3/4" thick) that goes between the bracket and the side of the block.

Thank you very much and this explains alot, now we will try to find this last piece and see if we can get it to work right. Would you happen to have a pic of the setup or just the third piece, or by chance is it a smaller bent piece with a large circle cut out of it?

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

That is what I am looking for as for diagrams but my bracket is different. The back piece is flat and bolts to the front piece at the bottom and other two bolts pass threw both brackets before they bolt to the motor. I will be home soon and will post a pic of the whole unit.

Ok here are two pics of the power steering pump and brackets I am looking to use, hopefully they will help determine what I have. I also have the brackets that came off my 350 that look like the one in the diagram from what I remember but I do not want to use that one. The one I want to use is the one that came with my 455, I want to use this one because it has a nice aluminum front bracket piece. Take a look and see if you anyone can ID this setup. If you can't make the pic out the pump is sandwiched between the two pieces, the bottom of the three bolts is holding the two together and the top two are passing threw both pieces to hold the whole thing to the motor.
Cheers,
Evan

Did that aluminum bracket come off an Olds motor? I've never seen one like it before.

That I am not sure but it was sold to me with the olds motor and the pump is the same as the olds 350 one I think. Will the 350 pump bracket work on the 455?

Yes. The lower dimensions are the same.

All Saginaw PS pumps are pretty much the same. That looks like it might be a bracket for the Buick V6.

Interesting

I should have done it before but let me see if I can find a part #, that might be all we need to id it.

Cheers
