Question Power steering bracket identification 307

The 307 came from a '71 car, it's a '68 C-10. The pulleys do not line up. I spotted the steel line has been rubbing on the pump, surprised it hasn't started leaking. So my question, did they keep the original pump and bracket, when this engine was installed? I looked at several threads, every one has a different looking bracket, alternators on the driver side, new bling pulleys, etc. I don't see how to modify the cast iron bracket part to bring the pump back. Will I also have to get a new pre-bent tube, or can those be made to fit better?

Re: Power steering bracket identification 307

When I installed power steering into my 68, I used this bracket, which I believe is very close to the original bracket that came in our trucks.

However, it appears your power steering pump pulley is located further forward away from the power steering pump itself. Mine is a double row pulley from a 75 C10 and not a single like it should be, so I believed the aft pulley groove was the correct one, and so used it. (ignore the slightly misaligned harmonic balancer)
