    - will the serpentine accessory brackets from say an early 90's 454 bolt up to an early 70's 454 block/heads?

    - where is the best place to buy a larger radiator, bracket, and shroud for a 454 install in a '90 K5?

    Mine is an 89, and think GM used this style up to 95/96. The motor is identical to the 82 motor I had in my old truck. I don't see why it wouldn't bolt up..

    oNLY THING TO REALLY LOOK OUT FOR IS THAT THE WATERPUMPS TURN THE OPPOSITE WAY SO THEY WONT INTERCHANGE.

    I have never heard that. I'm still learning/new at all of this. So could I just buy a water pump for a 90's 454 and install it on a 70's 454? I guess I'm asking if they are the same bolt pattern but just turn a different direction.

    yeah, forgot about that!! Just get one off an 88-up, they usually say something about spinning the other way....
