Question Pulley Issues with SWP and DSE PS Pump

This has been given me a headache for a week. I have installed a Detroit Speed Power Steering pump with their bracket. I have a short water pump, and installed the alternator bracket from Summit (listed below) With this setup the alt-crank belt is hitting the pump. It looks like the only way around this is to install a passenger side alternator bracket. I really, really want to keep the turnbuckle style adjustment. It looks like my only options are to go to a long water pump, necessitating new Crank pulley, pump, etc.

This bracket from Zoop's would work, but I do not like the chrome and the price.

Re: Pulley Issues with SWP and DSE PS Pump

Only other solution would be to convert the p/s pump to OE bracketry, maybe the pump also. This would lower the pump and allow clearance.

Picture of your present set-up looking from the driver side and the front, please.

Have you called DSE with your problem? Their customer service is very good. They can probably have a good solution for you.

Re: Pulley Issues with SWP and DSE PS Pump

I had called DSE, and they stated they normally run the very pricey Frontrunner serpentine kit, and didn't know what would work. They offered no solution. I can post a pic tomorrow, thanks for the help.

Re: Pulley Issues with SWP and DSE PS Pump

Take a look at my website under the power steering section. I too wanted to use the TC style pump but the belt routing would not work using a short pump. The TC pulley is very close to the pump body vs. the stock Saginaw P-pump which extends out enough to allow correct belt routing.

Talking Re: Pulley Issues with SWP and DSE PS Pump

The pulley's and everything is different between a short water pump and a long water pump. I think what DSE is saying, is their PS pump is for a long water pump.
