Big Block Chevy Billet Short Water Pump Pulleys

BB Chevy Billet Short Water Pump Pulleys

Billet pulleys offer a look and quality that is unmatched . CNC machined from a solid block of 6061 t-6 aluminum they give you strength and precision to handle high rpm .The belt groove is deeper than steel or stock pulleys for greater belt retention at rpms above 6500. Pulleys can be confusing and difficult, more so if you are say building a street rod or hotrod from scratch and do not have the originals to go from. So here is a few tips to make this a little easier .Chevrolet built short water pumps up until 1970 and then Chevy came out with a long version. In doing so they changed the alternator location from the drivers side to the passenger side and air conditioning from the pass to the drivers. Also changing the belt locations for the accessories .The LONG and SHORT of it literally is if you have a long or short pump to start with as everything is different from one to the other. Corvettes and few other vehicles are exceptions to this rule but all other Chevy's 1965-1969 will be short water pumps with the alternator mounted on the drivers side. So if you know that you have a short water pump originally or are installing one on a project then it is a matter of accessories .Air conditioning and power steering to be exact .On short water pump setups the alternator belt runs on the first groove (or closest to the engine or farthest from the radiator) The air conditioning runs on the center or middle groove and the power steering runs on the outer groove( farthest from the engine or closest to the radiator) basically there are three setups .

Alternator Only

If you are only running an alternator (no ac or ps) you need a single water pump pulley and a single crankshaft pulley

Alternator and Power Steering

If you have power steering and not running air conditioning You need a single water pump but you will need a triple groove bottom. Remember the alternator runs on first groove and the power steering runs on the third so you need a triple groove lower to have the power steering groove in the correct location (the center groove on the crankshaft pulleys is left open no belt)

Alternator, Air Conditioning and Power Steering

For this you need a double water pump pulley and a triple crankshaft pulley The power steering belt runs directly from the crankshaft to the power steering and does not go over the water pump to give the belt a farther rap around the pulley on the power steering to avoid squealing when turning

Power Steering

There are two types during the years involve of power steering pumps PRESS ON 1977 and later and KEYWAY 1977 and earlier . In short water pump applications this usually is not a worry unless the pump has been changed to a later model press on style pump as all short pump pre 1969 vehicles would have come with a keyway style originally. Keyway power steering pumps can be identified by a 5/8 threaded shaft and a nut that holds the power steering pulley on. In contrast a press on style will have a 3/4 shaft (no nut) as it has to be pressed on and off the shaft with a hydraulic press

Air Conditioning

Though all of our pulleys can be configured for air conditioning we do not sell air conditioning pulleys for the compressor
