This bracket assembly is designed to mount the common SI or CS style GM alternator in a centered location on 1946-1953 Flathead Ford V8s. The alternator mounts to the front side of the bracket.
Use the spacer provided on one side of alternator to make up the difference in the width of the alternator mounting boss.
To use this bracket on a 5/8” wide belt configuration you may need to cut approximately 1/2" to 5/8" from the wide boss on the alternator itself. You will also need to cut a similar amount off the spacer supplied with the bracket. This must be done to get the alternator pulley to line up with the drive belt.
Bracket usually provides enough clearance for center mounting of an alternator even on Super Dual and Triple style Flathead intakes on late style engine.
