HI Guys! I've got a little problem I need help with. I have a 1975 Vette that I'm starting to work on again now that it's warming up a bit. I installed a GM 350 crate motor but something seems a bit weird. There isn't any clearance between the pulley on the power steering and the frame cross member. The engine is where it should be in the mounts and the frame doesn't look bent so what's going on? People put new crate motors in C3's all the time and I've never heard of this complaint before. Is there a different set-up I need to buy that has a smaller pulley, etc. HELP!! Thanks much.            Darrell

Are you sure you have the correct brackets?  They are not the same as the other Chevy brackets.
