We are considering production of custom-fit accessory drive systems for the 400-430-455 Buick V8 engines.
These pulley systems would be exact-fit serpentine systems with a tensioner, although we may also consider simple replacement bracket & pulley sets using aluminum pulleys designed for the modern six-rib drive belts.
The pulleys and brackets would be CNC-machined from billet aluminum and coated for appearance protection. The kits would be complete and designed to cover as many applications and accessory combinations as possible.
Are there any manufacturers currently producing similar kits for this application? Should underdrive and overdrive systems also be considered?
It's a bit too early to provide price point data, as this idea is in its earliest stages.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
