I need someone to recommend a good budget type serpentine belt setup for SBC. I am aware that they require a reverse turning water pump, and I am not interested in all the huge mounting hardware that a stock setup requires. I just want steel pulleys and a flat belt, no fancy gadgetry.
A 30% reduction would be nice but not mandatory.

I just do not think that the benefits outweigh a $250+ pricetag.

Anyone know of a product that will fit that bill?

That is interesting, but like I said I don't want all the big aluminum brackets and idler that the stock stuff requires.

I just need water pump, alternator and power steering. I have a small A/C compressor, but it has the flat pulley already. I really only want pulleys, I have the mounting and tensioning already taken care of.

Art, when I ran serpentine I went to my local Jyard and just took all the pulleys off an lat 80s motor and made all the brackets. I used 3/4 " aluminum round with hiem joints for the adjusters and a Napa Idler on a bracket to get the belt around the water pump then adjusted the tension with the alternator adjuster. The set up was nice and I gained 100HP Shocked Laughing

Well if you only gained 100hp then why bother?! I think I am going to buy one of those tornado things to go in my air intake instead.

Seriously, I think that might be the way to go. I am going to dig around and see if I can find a set of pulleys. I guess that I could change the power steering pump to a later model. The old one is making a little noise anyway.

OOPS... didn't understand what you were looking for.

Ebay or junk yard is your best bet.

if you buy a new pump it still wont have a pulley on it. they usually come bare.

Thanks Smoke, but I found a full set of pulleys and a new style power steering pump for $20 yesterday.

You don't have any 3000 rpm TH350 stall converters laying in your stuff do you?

Great job Art!, The Vega converters are gone. I would have set you up with one. Redneck is the place to buy. Same price as the last one I bought and a better piece. Adam
