Accessory drive setup needed

Post  jones on December 5th 2014, 12:14 pm

I need a good accessory drive setup for my new engine. I have been looking around and found some nice setups but are way too expensive. Right now I am looking at the March individual serpentine belt system. Is there any other manufactures besides March & Billet Specialties?



I will be running a water pump, power steering and alternator.

I want it to look a little jazzy! The engine will have fabricated valve covers, oil pan and coated headers.

I'm really liking the CVF racing kit! The fact that it uses a 8-rib belt. I am going to run a high amp alternator for extra lights etc.

I just noticed that the Billet Specialties uses a smaller power steering pump. Is that a better pump and will it work with the F150 steering unit? I'd love to get away from the big factory units as they always start leaking fluid.

FYI: This is going in a 4wd with relatively large tires.

I did notice that the Billet Specialties comes with a water pump, alternator and power steering pump. I all ready have a new Edelbrock water pump and the alternator that comes with it is only a one wire 140 amp. (I'll just have to keep looking or call them and see if I can get a setup without those accessories.

I'm willing to spend that amount of money for a HD aftermarket radiator and electric fans.

Here is a cheap version I found using what looks to be original 460 pulleys and a couple home made brackets.






I wonder what ever happened with this prototype from Innovators West.

I noticed some of these kits say they come with a reverse rotation Edelbrock water pump. Is there such a thing?

Jonesy how are you going to get the water pump to work with serpentine if you don't have a reverse water pump???? there won't be enough pulley surface to make it work without being reverse

There is no such thing as a reverse rotation 460 waterpump. If you look at all the kits out there the belt goes over the wp pulley in the same direction as stock. They all use idler pulleys on both sides to get enough surface area.

I didn't think I've ever seen one on their website.

Now I am trying to look at the kits to make sure the brackets will work with the Innovators West Timing pointer.

I guess two idler pulleys is a lot cheaper than casting a whole new waterpump for limited sales. Of course once you did that you would need a different timing cover too. Very Happy

Use mid eighties factory truck brackets clean up the brackets and have them powder coated then just buy the serpentine pulleys from CVF.

You can mount the alternator where the ac pump was on the passenger side bracket.

You then have a nice clean serpentine setup for less than $300.

Do you think I would have problems reading the Innovators West timing pointer with the setup?

I ran the march brackets and stock 5.0 accessories
   I spun a 460 stock pump backwards.  I just used a be cool flat disk attached to the impeller.  Kept 840hp cool on the street.
