We have seen many such packages on the market, and some are appealing, but the price of most are very expensive. Some of the kits only include the pulleys and brackets. The problem is many don't mount up to existing accessories on your engine properly. We have included in our kit most of what you see on the front of the engine pictured above and below, with the exception of the timing cover and the damper. We have the polished aluminum timing covers in our other listings.

This accessory master kit is exactly what we use on our Turn-Key BBC (Big Block Chevy) complete engines. We have sold over 1000 of these engines with these exact parts on them. The parts used are of exceptional quality, and fit is precise. The parts are simple and straightforward to install. We will also offer technical assistance to those needing it. You will be able to speak to our actual engine builders who install this kit if needed. We have seen other configurations on the market that are nothing more than a mis-match of parts with no regard as to how they will go together. You will also receive the needed hardware for the pulleys and brackets. High quality V-belts are included and are the exact length needed. This setup uses a long style water pump.

If your vehicle originally had a short water pump on it, and you plan to use an electric fan, then changing over to the long water pump setup should not be a problem. Most all Chevy vehicles went to the long water pump setup around 1969. Should your vehicle be an earlier model than 1969, this setup should still work without a problem, but if you're running a mechanical fan, and had a short water pump, be sure you have enough space for your fan blade to clear your radiator fins. The long water pump protrudes forward approx. 3/4 of an inch longer than the short version. GM did not change mounting points on their blocks from the 60's on up, as far as we know.

As to how far back in model year that you can go with this setup, we're not sure, but we don't really see any problem using this on BBC engines from the mid-60's on up to the last of the BBC 454 engines that operated with a V-belt system. Even later BBC blocks from the serpentine era may be converted back to the conventional V-belt setup should you desire. Dart blocks are also not a problem for any of these accessories. This turn-key accessory kit will give your BBC engine a totally new look, and getting rid of all those worn out parts will certainly be of great benefit. The alternator bracket seems to mount up to most all the BBC heads on the market. Our pictures above show it mounted to a set of AFR's and the other picture below it shows it mounted up to a set of Procomp BBC heads. We don't see any problems using this kit with most heads on the market.

The many pictures of the dress up kit are provided to show you how it looks from many different angles once mounted on the engine.

Many have asked why we’re able to sell our products for such a great price. It’s because we’re also a major distribution center for all of the parts used in this kit. Our purchase price for the parts used in this kit are at master warehouse distributor (WD) pricing. Few retailers ever get to master-wd pricing. We also believe in keeping our profit levels low enough to allow the working man a chance to build his car the way it should be built.
