ahh but it can be used either way .... if you go on that link and click on install instructions it shows both ways ......it can be used with a p.s pump and no a/c or without either .....

what are you trying to do with you set up ?

Custom bracket similar to the Moroso piece. I tried the March setup first. Couldn't get it to work without squealling. This setup works great for me.

No, I just came up with the design. A machinist friend made it for me and I polished it.
I still have the Moroso kit less the two spacers and rodends/turnbuckle if your interested.

sn9550, clean set up! I likes!!

I have a few concerned Q's.....you are using a forward rotation water pump and timing chain cover ...right?

Besides your stock reverse rotation pump..

And Has your 1 and only bolt that keeps the belt tight and holds your alt in place break yet?

I ask this because I've delt with mods like that before and after many times of fishing out the the broken bolt in the head, i gave up and made a brace using 2 bolts on the water pump to the main bolt on the alt.

That put a halt to that prone breakage real quick!

Yes it's a standard rotation pump. I heard about the Moroso stud breaking that's why I came up with this particular design. By using the two bolt bracket on the head I was hoping to move the shear force off the threads of the bolt. So far so good. I only put about 1500 miles a year on my car so I'm sure that helps.
Do you have picture of your setup?

I got my kit from breeze automotive and put it on last week. It works well and allows you to use your stock style reverse rotation water pump. Here is a link:
