    Question Power steering bracket for Cad 500. HELP!!

    Hi Guys,
    ]I'm new here and was wondering a couple of things. First, how do I change my avatar to reflect my ride. then down to the gritty:

    I have a 67 Fleetwood that I am swapping the 429 for a 500. Getting all of the 500 brackets has been a bit challenging. but figuring out which is which has been even more. Cadillac's Only in Cali send me some brackets and bolts but didn't label them or tell me what year they came off of. I figured out all the brackets with the help of Chris at the Cad company, but am stuck on the power steering bracket and how to attach it to the pump and engine. I found one on Ebay that looks just like it so I contacted them to see what year it came off of. They said it was off a 1972-1977. I can't figure out to save my life how it attaches to the engine.
    Can anyone see me a photo? Feeling pretty lame!
    this is the bracket.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    No easy pics here but if the folowwing makes no sense I can shoot over the weekend.

    Bottom most hole in your pictured bracket gets bolt which IIRC fits into the head near the block or actually in the block. Top slot fits over a stud with it's own nut which gets screwed into the block. An additional washer goes on the bracket side of the stud before installation of the pump.

    The lefthand slot gets a bolt also but no inside washer.

    Thanks Ape Man! I kinda have an idea of how the bracket fits to the motor, but am duped at how the pump fits to the bracket.
    A pic would be very good
    Thanks again
