    I acquired an early 318 engine with the water pump outlet on the driver's side and a points distributor. Having a difficult time finding accessory brackets (ac,alt,ps). Also would like a recommendation on what to use to convert a points distributor to a mopar electronic ignition conversion. Thanks

    Got pics of the needed brackets have some 318 ones from a 87 w150 no idea what they are for. Dist conversion is really easy, harness, ECU and a dizzy. Just make sure the dizzy has a curve the same or close to what is in there now. I have the specs if needed.

      Look at a truck/Ramcharger enging for parts, I do believe the water pumps are the same, 318/360

      Didnt know there was a water pump that had an inlet that points left. Would make fitting a rad i like (cheap and all aluminum)much easier. But it might create issues with other things.

      Would the water pump outlet be on the left hand side. The specks on curve would help; can you send some photos of the brackets ?

      A lot of people have done well with the Pertronix. I went with the electronic conversion. I think the Pertronix might be easier and cost less (in the end). I can sure take apart a distributor with a quickness now.

      Left meaning passenger side? By proper definition left is the driver side. Everything is referenced from the driver's seat. Let's see how many red flags this answer gets. Let the games begin.

      Small blocks have a drivers side and a passenger side inlet for water pumps. I believe 69 back is drivers side and 70 up is passenger side. Both will bolt to any small block, however if you have a 70 up motor and run a 69 or older pump the inlet hides the timing marks. You can barely see them or just make your own on the passenger side. I know 1968 318 came with a bolt on timing tab that you can bolt on newer motors and use. You have to use timing tape and remark to balancer.

      Yes, my engine looks very similar; water pump on driver's side even is red in color. Hose fittings on the intake are similar but have a 2 bbl which will be replaced. Question, where can I find mounting brackets for a/c, p/s and alt?

      Beware swapping water pumps from early late style.
      Everything around them is different.
      The early pump is shorter, so none of the pulleys, brackets or accessories will interchange.

      I'm in the process of sorting my brackets and do believe I have extra of the power steering pump (still attached to the pump) and alternator, I'll check later today and let you know.
