    What's Included / Other requirements

    What’s included:

    Adapter plates made of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum (brushed satin finish)

    Zinc coated fasteners

    Bolts for adapter plates AND to attach GM brackets included

    Both 3/8 and 7/16 bolts are included for the passenger side head, since the holes vary for different years

    What else is required to complete the installation:

    GM BBC engine (1966-1993) -or- (1994-2000)

    366, 396, 402, 427, 454, 502, 572

    AC and Alt/PS aluminum drive brackets off of a GM Truck engine listed above.

    The brackets should include the idler and tensioner.

    Air conditioner compressor (from donor vehicle)

    Note: A good reason to use a 1994 and up compressor is that the compressor will use R134a refrigerant.

    Alternator (from donor vehicle)

    Power Steering Pump(from donor vehicle)

    A smooth water pump pulley is required (GM part number 10085760 or 19418445)

    Donor engines should have the correct pulley. (The pulley with flanges does not work)

    A reverse rotation water pump off of a 1988-1999 454 engine.

    This is considered a "long" pump and is 7 5/16" from block to fan mounting surface.

    Consider our Gates replacement Water Pump: (Kwik Performance PN 44030).

    A big-block crankshaft pulley, GM part number 10085753 (usually retails for $150+)

    Solution: We have developed an adapter to let you bolt on the SBC crank pulley from the donor engine.

    Consider the Crank Pulley Adapter for BBC engines (1966-93): (Kwik Performance PN K10259).

    Consider the Crank Pulley Adapter for BBC engines (1994-2000): (Kwik Performance PN K10540).

    Donor engine didn't come with crank pulley? We've got you covered: SBC Crank Pulley: (Kwik Performance PN 10085754).

    Six-rib belt, See our included installation instructions for suggested lengths and Gates part numbers.

    Alternator rating and PS pulley diameters can change suggested lengths.

    Always check tensioner marks for correct fitment.

    A tall deck engine will require a belt that is about 1" longer.

    A new thermostat housing may be needed to allow the upper radiator hose to clear the alternator.

    Upper radiator hose will probably need to change, but your vehicle's stock big-block lower hose, should work.

    Don't want to run AC? Here is the adapter to do that!
