its ugly but you can get a alt/ps 1 piece bracket off an old 308 torana/vb or similar. it goes on the drivers side. you can also buy a low mount (drivers side) standalone alt bracket off ebay, just be carefull with chassis rail clearance though

Yea really simple with no power steering but I really want to keep it. DNA motor sport do a bracket to change the power steering and alternator to the drivers side. Have to change it to late model pump and alternator though. Looks amazing just have to contract them on a price. And hopefully I'm sitting down when I get it lol

Not as yet just getting the brackets and stuff sorted out and just order merge collectors ect from the states and about to order the turbo I'm in no real rush as the cars been collecting dust for about two years after I put the cage in. Going to minni tub the rear too so I think it's going to take a while.

Problem with the DNA kit is they use their own custom timing cover. Which has bolts located in different places.

Didn't know that depending what the whole kit is worth I'd get it because it looks killer

He wants to relocate due to going turbo. Would assume I would be in the way of his dump pipe.

but leave the original aircon belt adjustment pulley in place so the belt is still adjustable - is what i was talking about, if you can picture that.

Yeah I seen a picture ages ago but can't find it for the life of me.

I'd prefer something a bit neater tho.

I spoke to DNA. No go with the kit. Only suits their full bracket setup.

That's a bummer wonder if you could cut it up and only use half of it because it really does look like its meant to be

It's more to make the bay look neater. But if my 304 sells its defiantly on the cards.

Electric power steering pump is the answer. Out of a vectra, or Astra, cant remember but only one of them is electric. Mount it where ever you like and just run some new lines to the rack and back. Ive had it in my race car, and there are 4 others I know ov that have done it no stress, pump was like $150, lines were about the same, but mines in the boot of the car. Awesome, no worries, your welcome haha

Kumbak in Braeside. There is every chance the prices have gone up, but 2 years ago they were $150, I guess it depends on demand. The bottom half of them polishes up really well too, and you can get new reservoirs if you wanted to make it look brand new again. They work awesome and make a hell of a cool noise too.
