Jim,<BR>Sounds like you are trying to use the bracket system from a 70 Electra Wildcat or Riviera.<BR>The GS from 67-70 used the same aluminum bracket but different metal plates that attached to the pump. Can't recall if the 66 system was the same as 64 and 65. The 300/340/350 setup up through 70 is too high and will rub the water pump.<BR>If you can't find the GS bracket/plates from a 67-70 the 71 on up system is the same for 350 and 455. It is a metal plate that bolts to the head and a wrap around brace that goes over the PS pump. Look for a system off a 71 and up 350 and all you will have to do is find a belt that fits. <BR>I know this will work because I have used it.<BR>Good luck,<BR>Mark
