I appreciate all the info, Probably a real stupid question but does the block care about pump rotation water flow? I don't have any idea what type of belt setup this block had in the beginning I got a bare block.Later I aquired a serpentine bracket setup mostly complete with a 100 amp alternator so I was leaning towards using that setup but I don't want to trash the engine I just finished assembling. If a v-belt setup would would be easier and would make the system more compact I'll use that what I'm trying to do is make the front of the engine as short as possible. So If I'm reading some of these post correctly a serpentine belt uses reverse flow pumps and v-belts use standard rotation as for short and long either will work with a v-belt but the serpentine needs the reverse flow. Thanks any more info appreciated.
