258 Serpentine conversion
Has anyone ever done a serpentine system conversion on their CJ with a 258? Where did you get the system? Any pointers on installation or places to find all the parts?
258 out of a YJ (87 to 90). Get all pullys, brackets, etc, basicly all the front engine dressing...including AC and power steering pump if needed.

I personally dislike serpentine systems due to the fact that a seized power steering pump or bad alternator bearing can strand you. With a multiple belt system you can always remove the belts from the offending system and still have an operational water pump to get you home. Just something to think about if you do a lot of wheeling.
