Is this bracket necessary?
1971 302-2V originally a no AC car. The previous owners had a Montgomery wards AC installed, but it's missing pieces so I'm taking out the rest. There is a bracket attached from the water pump to the alternator, is this necessary or just an added piece for an AC pulley or something. See the attached pic.

It looks to me like it was an add-on for an idler pulley.

Yeah, I think it was part of the aftermarket AC. I looked at some other pictures of 302's and they all seem to have some kind of bracket between the alternator and water pump. Plus, it wasn't hurting anything, so I put it back on for now.
