SBC harmonic balancer pulley spacer? 3/4" width?
Heres what im trying to work out. I have a 383 sbc with a electric motor to the water pump for my drag application, unfortunately that has ruled out me placing the altenator on the passenger side. So i thought i could get away with getting a low mount alternator bracket for the drivers side but when i placed it on the block i immediately saw it was going to come in contact with the steering rods and so on. So i flipped it made a couple cuts and BAM! got it to work!
Heres the problem- in order for the belt to be inline with the pulley setup at the crank, the pulley at the crank needs to come towards the radiator 3/4 of an inch. i made spacers out of some thin wall pipe for a mock up and even fired it up. It worked but it was just a little out of line. I would like something a little better than 4 seperate spacers. Ive seen spacers for this type of application but none that were near 3/4 inch thick
Anyone have any ideas or know of anything that may be of any help?
Thanks in advance everyone!
