351W accessory brackets

Does anyone here know anything about ford engines? I pulled an 84 351W from a crown vic and it was missing the alt. and PS pump brackets. Now, I've got a alt/smog pump(I think) bracket from an early 80s bronco. My G3 alt. is working but it's not a clean set up. I had to shim the bracket out from the block and the long bolt that fits the bracket is too small (in diameter) for the hole in the G3, so the pulley won't stay true. It sucks.

My power steering set up is rigged even more. On top of all of that, I've got a york in the mix. Everything is working, but not to my satisfaction with shims everywhere and misaligned pulleys.

What is the span of years I need to look for in the junk yard to get the right brackets? Will 302 brackets work? Did any fords use york AC compressors? Also, what about the G3? Is there a 351 bracket to cleanly mount this?

The nearest pick and pull is 2 hours away. I would rather not spend most of a day removing and buying wrong parts.
