Factory Serpentine Setup?

A buddy gave me serpentine brackets off of a 94 chevy pickup with a 350. I was about to spend the money on an aftermarket setup, but cheaper sounds great! The brackets look really big and bulky. Does anyone have pics of this setup with chrome or painted accessories? I would like to see some setups to see how they look under the hood.
Thanks!

Not sure if anybody has chromed a late model sepentine setup. But if you do use it... you'll need a late model reverse flow long water pump. Your stock shorty won't work with it.

Re: Factory Serpentine Setup?

I have the same setup on my 454. With the motor red, and brackets aluminum, is breaks it up and looks OK. I thought bout polishing it, but that would be alot of work...

Re: Factory Serpentine Setup?

i got my set up off a 92 out of the wrecking yard,had it blasted and powder coated all for less than 150.00. on the passenger side i got that bracket off a v-6 cause it doesn't have the smog pump prevision on the bottom. like stated earlier you need a reverse rotation pump, and i had the hose made up for the power-steering.i think that was $ 11.00, i had to cut the bracket behind the pump that also mount to the alternator to clear the headers, i'm using an ac delete pulley . you can,t tell it but also have a crank trigger on it just had to space it all out about 3-8 inch . the only thing i don't like for now is the upper hose but i'm going to change it. here's a few pics...jw

Re: Factory Serpentine Setup?

Mightymouse, looks nice and clean. Like the simple clean look of satin silver. Probably easier to keep clean then bare aluminum.
71meangreenc10, that's a very helpful thread. Do you think the ac compressor would clear tall valve covers? Do you any closer pictures of the brackets or clearance of the compressor?
B454rat, do you have pics?
Thanks!
