I have a fox body 85 Mustang GT 302 roller long block I'm putting in a 67 Mustang.
The 67 requires a front sump oil pan and pick-up. No problem. I have both.
Now, the fox body has a side mounted dip stick for the oil level check. It interfers with the front sump oil pan mounting and would be measuring oil level in the shallow end of a front sump pan - not good. No problem. I can pull the dip stick tube out. I did. I can RTV the hole closed.
Ok I figure I have to drill a hole in the timing chain cover to mount the dip stick. I can't. The 85 engine has a serpentine belt set up and the HUGE alternator bracket is in the way.
I know I'm not the first guy to run into this delema. What do you guys do?
I know I can swap the timing chain cover and water pump to use a conventional V belt set up. I prefer to keep the serpentine set up as I already have it along with all brackets, pullies and bolts :)
Suggestions? Comments? Solutions? What do I do ?

I did the same thing your doing... i have a 88 302HO in my 67, I bought Alternator bracket from March Pullies, looks nice and clean, and leaves room for the dipstick.

If your going to order a bracket, call March Performance first, and get the right part number from them. March Performance
