[QUOTE=zildjian4life218;1576754]If I get a front pulley setup off of this style
1985 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am V8 5.0 TPI Water Pump & Pulley | eBay
I should still be able to use my standard rotation waterpump right?

.. I usually have no problem finding belt routing diagrams, but can't find one for 85-86 Trans Am 5.0 FI with the dual serpentine/v-belt set up .. nothing in Alldata, and even my connection at the dealer was no help.

Looking at the pump that it calls for, looks like standard rotation. If you know how it routes, it's pretty simple - if it turns the same way as the crank, it is standard rotation .. if it turns the other way, reverse.

If you can find one of these cars in the junkyard with the belt still on it, or routing diagram under the hood .. or may have to buck up and buy a haynes or chilton manual.

But looks like only 85-86 5.0 with fuel injection had this set up.
