BB Accessory Belts

Hi there. I'm new here so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong place, and I've already searched the forums trying to find my answer but had no luck.
So here it is: I just purchased a '71 with a 402. This is my first BB, first PS truck and first AC. The previous owner (or someone who did work for him) did some funky schmidt with the front end of the engine and the PS pump is almost 1 1/4 out-of-alignment with the crank pulley. I could spend half a day fabbing mounts and shimming to make things right, but what I'd really like to see is some nice photos of a bone-stock setup that would clarify how things came from the factory.

Re: BB Accessory Belts

Any chance you can post up pictures of what you currently have now? There is a good chance if you show what you have someone can point you to exactly what you need to fix.

Re: BB Accessory Belts

It sounds like you may have a mismatch of short water pump and long water pump parts. The '71 would have originally came with a short water pump. Hence some of the components will be for a short water pump drive assembly. I agree with cableguy0, pics would help.
