Just curious to see what everyone is running for front drive set up on a Big Block Mopar/HEMI with a front plate & vacuum pumps? I currently have the electric Mezeire water pump motor in the stock aluminum water pump housing. Just need to come up with something to drive the alternator & vacuum pump.

You can build any sort of pulley arrangement off the damper by using a mandral.

GZ pump and bracket. Welded a boss on the Meziere pump for the alternator. A slot was cut in the motor plate for at belt adjustment.

I think it is a Petersen BBC drive kit that I modified to work on a Mopar.

Hopefully, your damper has a Chevy bolt pattern in the front. If so the choices of NICE front drives is endless. Personally, I HATE the mandrels that just thread in the end of the crank. You can't turn the motor with them vs the 3 bolt mandrel, that is anchored to balancer and has the option on the front of mandrel to turn motor. I typically use a Star Machine drive

I made one for my friends Big Block, I didn't allow for the engine to be turned over, so I will be making it again with a drive in the front.

What keeps the crank bolt from backing out if you try and turn motor backwards

I don't turn it backwards. Always taught the Jessel belt should only go forward. Haven't had a need to turn it backward. Not sure if the engine rotational break away torque would exceed the break away torque of the crank bolt. It would have to exceed 135lb/ft.

I agree 100% with using a chevy pattern front on your balancer. One issue it creates with some of the drives it attachment due to the size of the bolt and the way the balancer sits in a BB Mopar. We modified my Peterson to work with a stock bolt and washer set up. Or they sell spacers to go between the hub of the spline drive and balancer. We did not like the way the spacer looked so just modify the spline drive hub to work with no spacer

Hopefully makes sense. We use an ARP washer, cut down grade 8 bolt and then machine the back of the drive hub. All because we did not want to run a spacer smile

Al, it is a little less work to buy the extra thick BBC spline drive blank from Peterson. They sell one that call a blank but it is mostly machined already, just extra thick. It clears the Mopar bolt.
