Worked on a 57 Ford with factory 312 Yblock that had a GM Cavalier center steer r&p, GM alternator, GM p/s pump, and Ford crank pulley and w/p. Each pulley was the double V belt groove type so each component had some leeway in the forward-back mounting. We have been switching to single plane serpentine for so long I'd forgot how hard the V belt pulleys, in several planes, are to get aligned exactly right. I think my thinking in 3D has left the theater.

I was mocking up the belt drive on my 327 and kept running into alignment issues. Adding power steering and A/C to a chassis not designed for it added to the limitations. I finally decided to run a serpentine drive, a call to the folks at March Performance and the pulleys I needed were on there way. I still wanted to have the look of a period correct belt drive so I opted to not use a tensioner. Time will tell if I did good.

Martin,
I debated this but since all the components are Chevy (GM) I had to chose between Hipo or Spoon. If it needs moved I chose wrong and my feelings won't be hurt.

I'll never go back to v-belt on a custom build. Junkyards are full serpentine setups from a Chevrolet V-6 or V-8. All you need are heads with the accessory bosses in them. This precludes camel hump heads.

The only way to make a Ford any good is to put a Chevy engine in it.

I know, this is not the right place but I just couldn't help it.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

Mad? No. Envious of your freakish skills? Maybe.
