If you are into do it yourself I used chunks of 1/2" aluminum and turnbuckle tensioner.. 1/2" face and back brackets with 3 holes drilled and 3/4" X 2" for spacer between plates same as alternator width with 2 holes drilled. I will look for pic's as I'm sure I have some as I incorporated the 2 hole spacer for crank trigger mount. I know I had some shimming but I think that's because I had a 10 gauge trigger wheel. Some on e-bay are just cheap crap.

Here's mine. Home made.





Very easy to achieve proper and reliable tightening of the belt.

If I made this today, I would have used 2 groove pulleys on the waterpump and crank and 1 extra belt only between those two.
The alternator belt is not much in touch with the water pump pulley. But it might work as it is, So i try it the way it is first.

I would have kept the serpentine set-up. I went from the old v-belt to a single serpentine belt, Less worries JMO. But that's why it;s hotrodding do what you want / like.

I'm just the complete opposite,lol. If you break a serpentine belt,you lose everything. No water pump,power steering,etc.I have been stranded in my own driveway trying to get to work,lol. I just like the old idea of a couple v-belts that if done right at least you won't overheat your car if one breaks.JMHO

I'm not a fan of the serpentine just from the standpoint of looks. Don't like the idler pulley, or the flat belt. Old V belts just appeal more to me. Heck, I've only got one either way, so when it breaks it's gone.

Mine don't have the idler on it . I took my pulleys off a 85/86 Monte Carlo just have the one 5 or 6 groove belt don't look that much different then the standard v-belt, JMO But i understand about the loosing a belt and having nothing to back it up also. As of right now i have hanging on my wall two v-belt and one serpentine and one glimmer belt pulley set-up Just in case guess i can go back to which ever i need to or decide to down the road.
I ended up with all these trying to get one that would work without coming off.

I'm liking this one also. A little powdercoat and it's perfect
