Is the only way to order parts from Mark's Off Road to get him on the phone? And, looks like he has specific hours for answering calls?

I need the bracket that bolts to the back of the pump, does Georg have that?
Looks like you may have to fabricate that bracket.
Here is the detailed thread from Georg @orangefj45

I guess I've already got that bracket, just never been really happy with it.

You could try Mark's bracket and see if you like that better. I can't tell from the picture if the PS box would interfere.
Or @Steamer 's customization.
I tried Mark's mount, pump bumped into the Scout box. Mark made me a taller mount, for free, still won't fit. So it'll probably work on other 55s, just not mine.

The only other option besides fabricating from scratch would be a BTB/MAF PS pump mount. It uses the head bolts, but it works. I had one on a 75 2F.

Yup, tried that one too. Forget why i didn't like it.
I guess i did get this from Georg years ago.
Wish i could align the pulleys better and had a more secure mounting. Haven't had a problem in a while, but it chewed up belts quicky at first.
So, landcrusher909's bracket is probably home-made? He is clever that way.

It looks like he added a plate that attaches to a Georg bracket. Maybe to space it forward a little. Maybe he'll provide details.

Yes I used the bracket I got from @orangefj45 Valley Hybrids and found a scrap yard that had a few Volvo's I used the factory Vovlo bracket that came with the pump drilled a few holes and spaced it out to line up the belt. Here is a picture of the back of the pump you can see the Volvo factory bracket. This was 9 years ago and no leaks or issues

I was trying to find a number on the pump to narrow it down as I remember the pump and brackets came off I think a 76-'84 non-AC 240 Volvo The last picture shows what I started with. I drilled out the Bill Doren bracket to mount the back side of the pump, Using the lower bracket to use as a tensioner and bolting it to one of the lower water pump bolts. Thanks @pjohnson I tried the lower brackets and could never get it to line up correctly after using the ones from @orangefj45 I have done 3 others like this. Plus the Volvo pully works well with the wider belt.

I'm installing PS on my '73 40 and looking for a vendor source for a PS pump bracket. I've already relocated the alternator to passenger side and plan to use a Toyota pump (from an 80s Tercel wagon.) I've got an F motor and would like to retain the stock air cleaner. Anyone know who might still make a suitable bracket?
Just wanted you to know my FJ40 is also a 1973

I've decided to fab my own bracket since I can't find one that utilizes a Toyota pump on an F engine. Anyone have any pics or measurements of brackets they've made? What thickness of plate is recommended?
