Caddy 500 parts question

Post by zrackers »

Has anyone here used the March 2150 pulley set on a caddy. It has a two grove water pump pulley. Not sure why. Also the diameter is different than stock and there is no associated timing indicator.

Not specifically familiar with those, but in an OEM application a
second belt ran the power steering pump and/or AC compressor.

Some years additionally ran an air pump. Different years had different
pulley configurations, but as far as I know all ran more than just an alt belt.

Are you trying to go serpentine?

March makes a Caddy set up but it is a polished Billet and a small fortune!

The number given is one digit off from a cheap SBC March kit which wont work.

There is a guy on here from Texas think "welldriller" is handle and he has put together a Caddy kit.

Swamp He goes by bdriller. He did just put together a nice set-up.

T-rex has some nice Caddy parts in the classified for decent prices.
