    Default Gilmer Belt Drive ?

    I was considering running a Gilmer belt drive in my Kona. I have found a kit at a good price but it includes the water pump pulley as well which will not be used for obvious reasons. My question is does anyone know if I would be able to get a belt that would fit for the crank and Alternator pulley only. Thanks in advance for any info.

    OH..btw its a sbc.

    If you cannot find the belt needed at this place, they don't make it. I now buy all my blower belts here (at 1/2 the cost of the blower shops). Jocko

    One thing that you can do if you can't find a belt that is the exact length is you can have an idler to use up some of the length. When I made the water pump/ hilborn fuel pump and alternator drive I used a VW cam belt. I ran this setup for over 10 years with out any problems.
