Bracket issue

I bought a motor out of a older blazer. It has a short water pump with the alternator on the drivers side mounted high. The power steering pump is mounted low on the drivers side also. I have a question about the brackets. The pulley on the harmonic balancer has three belt grooves with the alternator on the inside pulley and the power steering pump on the groove furthest from the motor. I am looking at changing brackets and pulleys and wonder what I have. Can this be a long water pump power steering bracket with a short water pump? I am having trouble finding an aftermarket pulley and would like to change the power steering pump bracket to something that looks better.

Re: Bracket issue

BBC I take it. Sounds like a Short Water pump system to me. A Pic would help ;o)

Here's a Short Water Pump System with a 3 groove Crank Pulley as you describe. Very Tight and Neat. I believe the inner groove of the Crank Pulley was used for an Air Pump (not sure)

Re: Bracket issue

Power steering belt, as said, goes on the outside groove and the crankshaft p/s pulley is a bolt-on, usually.

The center groove is for the A/C compressor, I believe.

have you tried march or zoops for brackets and pulleys? Zoops is usually the same as march but cheaper!
