Here is the setup if you are not running a power steering pump. The Goodyear Gatorback belt replaces traditional V-belts because it offers lower rotating inertia, thanks to less overall weight. It is also self-cleaning and reduces slippage. The pulleys are hard-coded aluminum for extended service life, and the water pump pulley is sized for 6.5 percent rpm reduction.



The alternator bracket replaces the bolts on the left-hand side of the water pump with longer bolts. The machined-aluminum bracket also uses spacers to properly position the alternator pulley. The easiest way to get everything in place is to remove the upper-left bolt on the water pump, position the bracket and spacer, and install the new longer bolt, making sure to leave it loose.



Now you can remove the lower bolt, position the second spacer, install the new lower bolt included with the kit, and tighten everything down.






The distributor mounts to the bracket in two locations. The bottom tab uses a nut and bolt, but the upper tab is threaded and includes a metric bolt that threads into place from behind the bracket.







Many race teams use only SAE sizing on their fasteners, and having a single metric bolt on the engine can potentially cause confusion at the racetrack when everything must be done quickly. You may decide to drill out the threads on the upper tab and replace the metric bolt with a 51/416 nut and bolt. The tab has plenty of material, so opening up the hole slightly shouldn't be a problem.



Install the alternator pulley and secure it with the 21mm nut. The nut must be torqued to 50 ft-lb, but the process is slightly unusual in this case. Begin by placing a drop or two of red Loctite on the threads. Then, place a 21mm box-end wrench over the nut. Next, place a torque wrench with a 10mm, six-point socket over the threaded axle. Set the torque wrench to 50 ft-lb and make sure it is set to loosen. Now, tighten the nut with the box-end wrench until the torque wrench clicks.
