We installed the exact set up on Doc Mikes 55 that you sold him.

If you can get your eyes on it you can look at the bracket and how we did it.

I am sending you a video of it but it’s hard to see the bracket itself
If you guy make the bracket and arm that i can mount a fj60 pump in the lower smog position, then i am very interested.

Well..... i could not find a kit to put an FJ60 pump in an early 2F engine.

If i tried using the later model smog pump bracket then the pulley interfere with shock tower and the pump is very tilted.

I talked to my brother on this and yesterday he built a custom bracket from the smog pump and powersteering bracket and a custom idler hanging off the alternator bracket from a 3F FJ80 to make it work .

When building my 2fe, I had near every accessory and bracket for a f series engine sitting on the bench.

I found using a 3fe alternator and power steering pump is the best option. It even avoids using the 3 holes usually used for the power steering pump.

The f and 2f engines I've had around both seem to have the tapped holes in the front right side of the heads for the 3fe PS bracket too. I'm glad to see someone else suggesting this.

I do like the 3fe concept, but it means I need to chainge (extend) the lengths my wiring to my alternator and I need to run power steering lines to the opposite side of the engine. I don't thing the either is a game changer, but for the 2-3 hrs it took my brother make it for me....and for free parts he had laying around, its worth the price

I like bending hard lines, so that sort of project is kinda fun for me. My trucks will eventually have quite a few locations of custom bent stainless.
