iam trying to figure out what is the best way to install a vacum pump on my small blk chev motor, i don't seem to have room to install when running an 80a belt driven pump,pullies dont align up, is their any brkt kit I can buy to achieve this goal, or do I need to fabricate one, I run a Plug in style for starting on the passenger side of the head, no on board battery, to start car, and a belt driven enderlee 80a mechanical pump on the drivers side, no more room on the motor plate too install belt driven pump, what do I need too do. Thanks for the post.

Yes we have fab'd our own vacuum pump mount.
All JrFuel racers seem to mount the fuel pumps on the cam with another home made bracket, unless they run a Parks Tri-Drive, with a mag, fuel pump, vacuum pump, and dri-sump oil pump.all on the front of the engine.
Here is acouple of photos of my vacuum pump, the bigger pump is for my Hemi. the others are mounted on SBC

Tough call.
I'm the guy that sits on a milk crate holding parts in place with C-clamps and tape.
After a while my butt looks like an EGGO waffle.
Look at as many pictures of others cars as possible.
Sorry, not much help on this one.

Driving a Front Engine Dragster builds character and keeps you awake for a 1/4 mile at a time.

Don't knock milk create creations,I do lot of that.  As matter fact thats what I had to do to adapt a moroso vacuum pump to a TFX92 hemi. I actually drove mine off a gear thats driven off cam. I have a dbl gear setup(well will once new gear gets here. One drive fuel pump and one drive vacuum pump
