Default Remote Oil Filter

Hello - newbie here. I own a cruiser with a 1997 Mercruiser 5.7L 2bbl carb and Alpha1 Gen 2 sterndrive. Getting to the oil filter is a real challenge (esp at my age) so I purchased the remote oil filter kit per the P/N located on the MC Parts website. However, the kit indicates the remote head should be attached at the rear of the sterndrive remote oil bracket, but mine is on the opposite (starboard) side of the engine. I have power steering (PS) and the alternator mounted on the port side of the engine where the oil filter remote head is supposed to attach, so I am wondering how best to mount this kit. Can I make a bracket and attach it somewhere in the vicinity of the rear of the PS bracket? Anyone have any pictures which show how theirs is mounted with a similar engine as my 5.7L (no oil/water coolers on my boat - just standard sterndrive water pump)?

Thanks in advance....
