Meziere Water Pump - Alternator Mount Problem - help ; )

I have a Small Block Ford and I'm installing the Meziere (wp111) Electric water pump, when I looked ahead to mounting the Alternator, I remembered that all the stock brackets, mount to the pump itself. Since it's Sunday and I can't call Meziere, I went to there web site. They do not list anything as far as "adapter Brackets". Has anyone run into this problem? I do not street drive the car anymore, but I do perfer to run an alternator. I'm trying to make the final event next weekend, so any help would be much apreciated.

Regards, Brian

I think you need this one for ease of installing the alternator brackets etc.
If memory serves right its way expensive, $450+ but the aggravation saved can help with the cost aspect of it.
If i read it right, the 55gph has the heater/bypass ports and the 35gph version doesn't? Check it out. If you don't need the heater setup then the 35gph one "supports up to 650hp" Prob save a few bucks there.

I went with a remote mount setup (for a few reasons) and i definitely had alt mount issues. I ended up buying a Moroso alternator mount setup for the ford But hardly used much of it. I made a custom mount and pieced it together.

Update, summit racing has it for $370..

Moroso makes a bracket that will work for your pump.Its about 100.00 in Jegs or Summit.March also makes one but its about 250+.
I have the same pump but have not installed it.I also need to get the moroso bracket

Since the pump uses the same bolt pattern you can probably just use spacers on the bolts to make the old brackets work?
