I have a set of heads with no holes in the heads, can I use a long water pump with small block will it clear my radiator, the reason I want to use long pump is because of acc holes in it. just thinking ahead. Thanks Raybob

If your SBC is were it belongs it will clear no problem, however you are creating other issues with brackets & pullys. I would not use a long pump without the correct heads. PS & AC can be done with a short pump and no accessory heads the factory did it hundreds of thousands of cars.

I dont know what to tell you to use for alt bracket LWP uses the hole in pass head. SWP is alt on drivers side off head if equiped with holes or exhaust manifold if not equiped.
