    I have a 1979 Chevy Blazer with a SB350 that I am trying to fix up a bit and I am considering the GM Performance Parts "Serpentine Accessory Belt Drive System "Deluxe With Air" it comes with the items listed below. Does anyone have any experience with this system? I currently need at minimun a new steering pump, and my AC compressor is completely missing. I am also planning on replacing the stock clutch fan with an electric fan.

    10055800 Secondary Air Injector pump bracket
    1134344 Air compressor assembly, (CR4)
    10129569 Idler belt pulley bracket
    88894005 Water pump kit
    10055880 Water pump pulley

    I installed one without air conditioning.

    If you need the new accessories, I think it is a good deal. The parts on reman, but still better than buying it all separately.

    I had two major issues.

    One was with installing a factory water pump driven fan, so if you're going with electric you won't have that problem.

    The other was the alternator hookup. You need a 4 to 2 wire adapter. Read this and it will tell you all you need to know on that:

    I used their kit w/o air. Really pleased with it. But as Mrk5 says, you'll need to sort the alt wiring out. (I had a little help from someone! :waytogo: :D )

    You've got some really cheap junkyards. The ones here wanted $500 for all that stuff. I ended up purchasing it from a fellow CK5'er.

    Try checking for a truck that was hit, or someone is parting privately. If they let you pull the stuff you can take pics and make sure you get everything you need.

    At some point I am going to switch to a higher amp one wire alternator, but I don't know if I will do it now or later. I think in the long run the one wire will work better. I will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the heads up about the wiring.

    I installed that kit on my Ram-Jet 350 this year. Works great. I did change all my accessories to the new generation stuff. Alt, powerstearing. I installed an electric fan. AC Delco has a conversion wire kit to convert the 2nd generation Alt to the newest 3rd generation wire pattern. I don't have the #'s anymore. I don't have air conditioning anymore, so I had to buy the pulley kit to replace the compressor. IMHO, it was worth installing.
