    Default Gilmer options

    Hi,
    I'm piecing together a 1 belt Gilmer set up for my blown 304 and need options other than the standard ebay aeroflow brand kit. I want to have a larger 74-78 tooth crank pulley and then to have alternator and water pump pulleys based on this.

    Can anyone help me out with where to look for these parts?

    Yeah, they seem to be pretty keen to say that as well.
    But that's a twin belt system, I want A single belt..
    Surely there's a system out there? I've heard you can get adapters that let you run sbc crank pulleys?

    I think I've found a way to run a 76 tooth crank pulley which is ideal for my blower but in worried it will over soon the alternator and water pump??

    Can anyone comment on this?


    It will give the water pump a 2:1 ratio to the crank and the alternator I can't calculate as the car is a at the shop so and I can't find specs on line for the number of teeth..

    If your looking for options with crank pulleys, small block Ford is very close to Holden and is easily modified to go onto the balancer.
    You might find more blower drive options with the Ford's.

    I run a Ford Serpentine kit on my Holden.
