I just installed an Offy 4bbl intake (going to run a 390 cfm carb) and I cannot get the idler pulley brackets or power steering pump brackets to align at all. I hope im simply doing something wrong as this is becoming a major stalemate in my build progress. Has anyone had any similar experiences with this? My 4.2 uses a serpentine belt also. Thank you

I will tomorrow after work. I tried working on my Jeep today but it gets dark here pretty quick this time of year so I ran out of light.

Ok so I have pictures but im having issues actually getting them to upload (sorry Im new here lol). But basically my diamond shaped bracket and my idler pulley keep fighting each other for alignment is issue 1. Issue 2 is how the power steering pump actually mounts because im stupid and didnt take pictures.
