I am swapping from a small block to a big block and I've ran into a couple issues finding what works on my 66 impala. My 454 Big block engine came as a long block with no accessories. So I had to figure out what works as I went. The information is a little foggy.

As for moving the power steering over.

I tried some long brackets for a chevelle but they do not fit the impala.

you would think this description would fit.
1965-68 Chevy Chevelle Big Block Power Steering Bracket Kit 396 427 454

I got the new ones from EBAY. Looks like these will work. Pricey at $85 but...

The Small block PS bracket is on top and Big Block PS bottom. You can see how the bolt holes are different.

rear adjuster bracket

The rear bracket does not hit the header.

It seems as it should fit. The pump lines up with the outer pulley.

I should have one open pulley slot if I want to add AC on the passenger side down the road.
