4.0 cylinderhead conversion PS bracket

I made the switch to the 4.0 cylinderhead on my 4.2 block and haven't had any luck fabricating a bracket that will allow belt adjustments. I'm not a fabricator by any means so if anyone has a good solution please let me know. I'm willing to pay for a proven bracket.

I followed Fatman's example and mocked it up with cardboard until I got what I needed.

If you have or can obtain the stock bracketry, you can just cut the top portion of the large bracket off. I had to trim a little more for the header, but haven't had any issues since I completed it.

Dave,

Can you scan a trace of the front bracket and send it to me; I think I may have the back bracket figured out.
