3rd gen f-body accessory drive set-ups

Postby Loves302Chevy » November 8th, 2012, 4:22 am

Can anyone help me with this?
I have an 84 TransAm and it has the 4 v-belt setup. I was going to change to the setup, before GM changed over to full serpentine, where only the alternator became driven with a serpentine belt - the other accessories remained v-belt driven. But now I'm thinking of changing over to the full serpentine setup.
But I want to remove the AIR injection system, so I won't need to drive the air pump. Also I can't stand that the A/C hoses run all the way from the pass side firewall to the A/C compressor which is located on the driver's side. I want to swap locations of the alternator and the A/C compressor (like with the full serpentine setup) which will give a much neater engine compartment. Is there an easy way to accomplish this, and please don't suggest the March or any other setups that cost anywhere from $600 - $2200. Thanks, Mike.

Note: the current stock setup has the alternator & air pump on the pass side and the A/C compressor & P.S. pump are on the driver's side.

If it was my car that I needed to do that too, Id find out what year and model of car had the basic SMALL BLOCK ENGINE config similar to what your referring to and start looking for that particular car in salvage yards, because in most cases accessory drive brackets and pulleys etc sell cheaply, but finding those component by almost any other route will be both time intensive and expensive
