I don't think a left side mid mount bracket would work well with the short water pump. I'm not sure if the water pump provides the necessary mounting holes. I think most of the aftermarket brackets are made for the long water pump.

A machinist in New York made mine. He did a great job. Very Very reasonable price to make it. I am using a long water pump though. I'm sure that it would work with the short pump though. Good luck on your search.

I can't remember who turned me onto him. I think he charged me about $70.00. It was about 5 years ago. He is a great guy. Him and his son are building a Nova. His name is Jerry Lane (585) 247-5940. I can't remember who it is, but another member on here knows him too.

What I used originally in mine was a power steering bracket for the lower mount and then just an alternator arm like you can find at just about any auto parts store to mount to the water pump. I have the short water pump. I already had the power steering bracket so that's why I used it. This worked well for me because I have camel hump heads.
