They used to be all over the place when I was growing up, but by time I hit driving age in high school there weren't too many around. I can only remember 3 in my hometown at that time in the mid-late 80s - mine, a buddy of mine, and a girl I'm still friends with all had one - but those are the only ones I remember seeing. I've since moved to the Atlanta area and I've still only seen a few here or there - 2 that I recall right now. They do pop up on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace from time to time here though. I started a thread for Craigslist ads for IIs that has been stickied at the top of the opening page for this group. There are a few of us who update with different cars and parts from time to time to help those looking for things find them. You can keep an eye there, maybe something will come up that you'll want or need that isn't around you. :shrug:

Bracket looks visually correct.
Think I had some bracket part numbers in my thread.

Pump probably the same for both 77 and 78.
The housing around pump is different style in 78 (bigger fill tube I think)

Hi LILCBRA just watched the video of your baby, love those gold stripes. That is a beautiful car.that bracket you posted, I have the bigger bracket that that fastens to the motor with two bolts, but iam missing the smaller one that's in between the pump and the bigger plate. Now i managed to put this one on that i had, looking at some other 5 litres,but again i think iam missing a piece. This is what i have now with the pump.but the only bolt that i can tighten is with is that long bolt,put blue line on it.can you or one of the other members tell me if this is wright,am i missing a piece. Thanks
