Ok , here you go.
Pats won, and I stayed up for the full game, so, really really beat tonight!
Attached are 5 pic's and I will send two more in next thread.
Alt and Comp tensioner's are not connected, but use bolts on the front of the blower drive.
If you need any explanation, just ask. If you need a close up , let me know.
So sorry for time to do this.

rich:cheers

Will Do! Probably won't be till January as we just ordered a set of Diamond coated pistons (3-4 weeks).....are you running a hub or harmonic balancer on the crank snout??? We are gonna get a custom made balancer......Eric

All of my supercharged motors run a hub. One motor ( my 29 Pontiac) has about 35,000 miles on the motor, with at least 2 drag races a season ( about 6 -8 runs each time) and I have never had a problem. Never had crank, or hammered bearing problems. I was once told that the big belt ( Gilmer drive) takes up all the harmonics, that a damper's job would do.
Let me know if you need a close up of the snout.

later,

rich

NO, they are Diamond brand pistons, with a "special" coating for supercharged applications.....they COST as much as diamonds though!:eek:
