Default 240 alternator relocator driver side

Going to probably move the alternator on the red wagon from the low passenger side over to the drivers side. AC is all in pieces anyways and I don't think I'll ever add it back so was wanting to move the alternator over there. Who makes a relocation bracket for this? Currently have alternator low passenger side, AC compressor low drivers side, and powersteering pump high drivers side.

I don't think there is an exact bracket for what you are asking (replace A/C with alternator), but you could probably make it work with spacers, etc.

You can use the OE bracket like on a late model 940 to have a high mount alternator and move the PS to the pass side.

My 91 has the newer style PS pump with integrated reservoir so that looks like I'd need to swap in the older style pump? Not the end of the world I guess. It'd more or less just need all of the mounting brackets from a 940 looks like?

I mean, **** it, how hard is it to get a hold of a manual rack and stuff?

940 accessory brackets.

Some minor shimming was needed on the AC compressor. Probably down to it being a 240 unit.

I think so? The alternator is off a GM truck so that's for sure not stock size.

For my powersteering I elongated the holes in the PS bracket to mount it lower, there is also a 240 bracket for the alternator with the same shape to which you could do the same I believe.

I don't have a better pic saved anywhere, but this is what I did. 940 bracket with 240 power steering that has the remote reservoir, then a denso on top of that. I had to measure for all the belts, took some guess and check.
