The problem is that the '90 motor came with the factory serpentine belt setup while your '82 had a multiple v-belt setup. There should be the bolt holes you need, however, you may have to remove a stud from the driver side head. The water pump is likely not equiped for the mounting of the pump bracket so you would have to swap that out.

I believe there are 3 bolts in the front that are accessible only by removing the pulley.

i think the powersteering pumps on vans are shaped differently. when i did a s10 v8 swap a while back the 350 i used came out of a van had to use a pump out of a k5 due to it hitting the frame
