    Do you need 'em for V-Belts or for a serpentine belt setup? I've got a complete set of brackets and pulleys for a 454 with V-Belts and the big honkin' 70's style a/c compressor.

    right now I've just got a line on the engine, it's a 396. My friend has it in his garage. it's rebuilt but that's about all i know right now. I guess the 454 brackets would work. I'll ask him tomorrow. Sorry I wasn't more prepared.

    There are pics of them installed on my 454 at http://www.angelfire.com/super/ThunderTruck/454swap.htm $100 plus shipping will get you all the brackets, plus the pulleys for the crank and the water pump. GM wants more than that just for the 2 pulleys. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif Send a PM if you're interested. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Try eBay, I bought everything I needed to install a 427 in my K5 off ebay. All brackets except AC, AC compressor, power steering pump, alternator, and also the engine itself. No complaints about anything. Dealt with people that have "history" on eBay with a good profile. Watched for an engine within driving distance of home. Prices were good and easy to deal with. Do your homework, know what it is you need. What fits and doesn't fit.
