    just wondering if any of ya'll know if a serpentine belt setup from a 99 S-10 blazer with the V6 4.3L will fit on a late model 350.

    just wanted to know cause i can get my hands on the setup for CHEAP maybe even free. (it's great working at a GM dealership :D )

    yes it should fit, the front of the blocks is the same. You might run into problems though with the assories them self. When i did mine i had to put spacers on the crank pulley to get every thing to line up right

    what is late model to you? 87+ heads have an extra hole that older ones do not have, so you can't install one bolt on the serpentine bracket(passenger side one I think). I ran for many thousand miles minus that bolt and never had a problem myself.

    the heads i have for my build are the centerbolt design heads. so 87+ would be those heads, right?

    you might have to swap the valve on the back of the power steering pump depending on what type of steering box you are using
