Has anyone run into this problem? I have a Ford 5.8 (351) 392" stroker crate engine with "Z" heads on to wich I am putting a serpentine drive and accessories from a 90s era 5.0. In order to fit the air conditioning compressor and P.S. pump, I got FRPP adaptor bracket to fit 5.0 front drive accessories and serpentine drive, to a 5.8, only to find that the bolts do not align with the taped holes in the front of the heads. They (the bolts) seem about 1/2 inch low. I spoke with FRPP tech staff and they said they had not had this problem come up and that the "Z" heads are drilled exactly like any other Ford 5.8 head. I am stumped and my engine assembly has ground to a halt. I believe I have all the proper components put together properly. If nothing else I think I could scavange the brackets from a 5.8 with serpentine drive and air and P.S. from a pickup or van... I'd appreciate any insights. Thanks
