Do you happen to have a picture of this? There is a guy here in Vegas that has TONS of Mopar parts, and may have that. Thanks!!!

I need to get he head tapped out for that. There is no mount to put the longer bolt in there.

As she sits right now. Need to pick up a new drain plug for the radiator on the way home, but I think it's looking good.

Figured out part of the problem! (Hopefully! LOL) Pictured below is the new water pump housing that I had to buy. the hole that I am pointing at is where the top of the bracket is supposed to go...the same hole that my current water pump doesn't have. So now the alternator will be moved down by at least an inch, and moved outwards. Hopefully this works. Picked up a new water pump at the same time as I have been having some overheating issues.

Would the 440 brackets work? It looks like it takes the mount out a little more...I may try a thinner alternator as well though.

Definitely need the RB brackets. A wiring diagram that matches the alternator would be a good idea, too, make sure things are wired properly after the fact.

Thanks for the input. Do you happen to know where I would get the RB brackets? All I have been able to find are BB brackets...

Ok, I am trying to convert my '59 to an alternator. I bought the adapter brackets, but the alternator is hitting the distributor. (The distributor cap is off for the picture, just to align the alternator, but it will not go back on..) Picture is below. Any advise??

Well, it's been a couple of months. I got the front end rebuilt, got the power steering pump fixed, and got new tires on the '59! This is how she looks today in front of my office:

Ok, so I'm trying to work with PST to get different tie rod ends, and they have a few different ones for that year of Chrysler. Does anybody know where I can find the measurements for the Saratoga outter ends?  Thanks!

So update, work is finished....or so I thought...the threading on the new tie rod end is too long to get the car aligned. I need to get shorter ones. The drivers side is off by 1.66° and passenger side is off 3°…fun.

Welp, I broke down and had a shop swap the bushings for me. I didn't want to brake anything. The drivers side is back together, going to be working on the passengers side today, then just need to bleed the brakes, and take it to get the alignment done. I'm getting antsy to drive her again. It's been a couple of months due to the heat. LOL!! Will post pics later on today.

Welp, the front end is completely apart. Drivers side took a bit, but once I figured everything out, got it done, and then the Passenger side was easy. Also, if I understand correctly, the shafts are pressed into the lower control arms, along with the nuts? I haven't tried taking them out yet. I wanted to be sure on this before I tried. Anyway, on to the pics!!
 

 

 

 
And as most of the parts sit now:

Ok, so I started playing with the car again, found a local that has the ball joint socket, so hopefully I'll be able to get that part taken care of. Since the torsion bars were pointed out, I've been messing with those, however....I really don't know what I'm doing. LOL! I got the adjustment screw loosened all the way, but from here, I'm at a loss. Any tips from the more experienced? Do I need to remove the crossmember for this? Any advise is welcome! Thanks all!
