Hey I have a 78Malibu with a 5.3l/4l60e How did you get the alternator to clear with the stock hood. I am using the small block mounts with a home made adapter plate. Looked at your pics and couldn't come up with anything. Maybe I need to push the motor into the fire wall? Thanks in advance.

I think it has a lot to do with the motor mount design. I used the transdapt motor mounts and set them about 1" back from stock location. I've seen some people that have grinded the top of the alternator to clear the hood. I have also heard of others adapting or using an F-body alternator in the truck accessory bracket.
