Alternator and Power Steering Brackets Chevy 350 Conversion

Does anyone know of the best fit for alternator and power steering pump bracket and belts configurations for a 92 chevy 350 in a 79 CJ5? The engine came with the air conditioning pump and a serpentine belt. I don't want to use the air conditioning and want to configure the alternator and power steering. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Run a piece of small diameter rope around your pulleys to determine the length of belt you need.

Any parts store should be able to dig one out of there stock to match.

With the serp belt on the 350 a pulley can be bought to replace the AC compressor. Sorry, i dont remember where i got mine. Everything else on the 350 will work, the hi pressure power steering line needs to match your pump, either a flare fitting or the "O" ring style.

Why aren't you using the stock Chevy pieces? That seems to be the obvious answer, but maybe there's something I'm missing.

If I'm not mistaken it came from a local parts store.

You need a idler pulley off of a 88-94 chevy truck w/o a/c. I have used this on other things before. V-6 or V-8 will work. It goes where the a/c compressor was originally.

Parts Plus carries the pulley you seek.

I have the same setup and am looking into making mine into a compressor. At this point I'm not sure if it's worth the effort or not. I'm going to compare the output rate vs. an electric compressor plus the conversion cost......
