Thats sweet 32Vicky!!!
Are you running a crank hub on it? I just bought a steel, 8 inch chrome balancer and some guys are telling me to have three xtr holes drilled in the balancer for the crank pully and have an extra keyway drilled. You do any of this?
Im only gonna have the blower belt, alternator belt and thats it! Im using a electric water pump, so Im trying to figure the best way to hook up my alt belt.
Thanks for the pics. Way Cool. HG:thumbup:

I'm not running a balancer, only a crank hub (with 2 keyways). Don't try to drive a blower this size with only one keyway. I don't know if the smaller blowers can get away with one keyway.


The serpentine pulley fits the crank hub and the spacer bolts to the crank hub, securing the pulley.


The blower pulley then mounts to the spacer.


As a fair warning, none of the parts bolted right up. The serpentine pulley and spacer were both modified. Make sure it is all secured to the crank with a bolt. I was told that the bolt wasn't required and nearly lost the entire assembly. I then did additional modifications to allow a center bolt.

For your set-up, you shouldn't need the spacer since the v-belt is a lot narrower than the serpentine.

The distributor is a MSD Pro Billet 8360. It's small enough to work with the blower.
