Default 78 super cab 460 power serp system

I was having figment issues with my power steering as the pulley was rubbing against steering gear box. Bought cvf racing serp system and it would work but the belt would hit the lower rad hose by the water pump. Have tried plenty of different ways but can't think of any more. If I go with the low mount alternator then the crossmember is in the way where alternator goes.

Yes, they changed a bunch of the system around but fixing one issue would cause another. Seeing if anyone else had a similar issue.

So return it for refund, and get the factory serpentine system from a 7.5L.

Shim the engine mounts up, and neutralize them. Install a smaller-diameter PS pulley.
