Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

WEll since I am going to replace my alt, I am going to do everything. I currently have a 327 with power steering and NO AC. What serpentine conversion kits are available for me to use on this setup? I am planning on using a CS130 style alt as well.

Re: Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

There are MANY kits available. Here's a few:

Probably one of the most popular ones are from March Performance:
http://www.marchperf.com/

Here is some GM systems that are quite nice and received good reviews around here:
http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/ (Copy/Paste part numbers 12497697 12497698 and 12497869 into the part number search to get prices)

Here's a few more that have received good reviews around here. Do some searches with the company names on our site here:

http://www.billetspecialties.com/pro...scid=52&rdir=1

http://www.zoops.com/positrak.asp

http://www.blackmountainprecision.com/

http://www.conceptonepulleys.com/

http://www.cvproducts.com/cv/product...ord=serpentine (go to bottom and click on the second page for several kits by cv products and I think they carry a couple other brands too)

Jegs sells both both March's systems, GM's systems and probably more. GM Parts Direct seems to be quite cheaper on the GM ones. I didn't compare the March pricing:
http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...erm=serpentine

Don't forget to check Summit as well:
http://www.summitracing.com Do a keyword search on Serpentine and you'll see they sell March, Billet Specialties and Zoops (I think), and probably more.

I know there's a few more I'm missing.....If I think of them I'll edit or add to this post. Hope it helps. Good Luck.

Re: Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

Thanks for the help on this. Do the March kits come with alternators, or is that a seperate purchase? Once again, thanks for taking some time on this

I don't really know. You'll need to read some of the links I posted and what each of the kits come with should be in there.

Re: Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

Has anyone used any of the GM belt kits on their camaro before? If so how did it work? Did it require any mods? Thanks.

Re: Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

I think that this is definitely the way to go but the GM version doesn't come with the power steering pump pulley. I wonder which pulley I would have to get?

Re: Replacing Alternator (Serpentine conversion)

I went through this about a month ago,I dont know about anyone else but I had a hard time with the diagrams of this belt system with this water pump with this a/c unit etc.I found a small company in Ringold ,Ga. called Coyote Rodders supply,its just a guy and his wife,but he had me fixed up ,over the phone none the less, in about a minute,he had exactly what I wanted and was 500.00 cheaper than a March system...I also bought an aftermarket A/C system from him and he gave me a good discount on the whole deal...with a lifetime warranty,before you do anything I'd call him,Jim at 1-877-935-8880 he was adamant about me seeing it before I bought sent a cool catalog that showed it with/without a/c etc I liked it and bought it!
