I am currently redoing a poorly done installation of a replacement engine in a 1979 vette.

The car is equipped with power steering, A/C, power brakes, and all of the other pulley applications one might consider, although the current configuration has left out the A/C, which, I have been told by the boss, that must be replaced for her

It currently has 3 pulleys which I would like to consolidate into a single serpentine arrangement if possible, if not, at least reduce it to 2 to greatly reduce the number of things that take space.

Does anyone have a source or resource for such a thing?

Many thanks!

JC

I put in a crate engine, the ZZ4 from GM Performance and also got the serpentine belt set up with it. Works great. Comes with a 3 yr. warranty. I got the turn key package, comes with everything!
More money of course, but they have everything you need. Just my 2 cents.
Good luck,
Dave

Dave,
Many thanks for your input. I have been thinking about that but being in CA makes me always consider smog issues.....I'll do the research.
Thanks again!

Don't be afraid to call them, they were very helpful with me, they may have an option for the smog thing. Luckily I have historic plates and do not have to get the car inspected here in Jersey.
