anyone know if i could adapt say 2.3 serpentine pulleys to my 460? i have march underdrives right now and the alt pulley is so large it only puts out 12.9-13 volts at idle with a 3g.

I had a bit of a problem with charging on a 3G, so I just got a smaller pully and put it on the alternator. Fixed it right up

Just drill the water pump pulley pilot hole larger for the 460 pilot and you may need to groove the 4 outer holes out to match the 460 but it will fit along with the crank pulley and alt pulley. I will use my 428SCJ single groove underdrive water pump pulley, single groove 351W crank pulley, and single groove alt pulley on my 466 so I can keep it simple while not having to buy new pulleys. The serpentine pulleys will fit the same way but I'm not sure if the 460 ever came with a reverse rotation water pump or not. That could be a possibility for me too if there is a reverse rotation water pump available for the 460 and then I could use the 5.0 pulleys but that might make me think about going more modern with a fuel injected tunnelram on the 466 and that can't happen yet or can it? I don't even want to think about that! But it is an interresting concept. Dual large bore throttle bodies on a 2/4 tunnelram using programmable digital fuel injection. DOH! I don't want to think about that yet!
