    I want to mount a hydraulic pump as cheaply as possible to my 96 GMC 5.7 vortech,1.doe anyone know where to get a dual crankshaft pulley either t serpentienes or serpenteine and v belt? 2.or dual altornator pulley?3. instead of an electric clutch what do you call an idler pulley which would require a pin or bolt for seasonal engagment?

    I took my crank pulley off and drilled the center hole out a touch and used a pump pulley off of an older plow setup...not hard to do..all you have to do is find a pulley with the right bolts..i.e. get pulley and bolts off of a 85 plow setup take your crank pulley off. bore the center hole just a touch and use the bolts and pulley off the 85 gear. It will work I did it...

    are you saying you have two pullyes on? mine is a serpentine so I'd like to add a double vbelt to run my pump on the side and leave the stock serpentine alone.

    right. that is what i did. mine too has a serpentine belt. i un bolted the crank pulley bored the whole slightly and instead of using the stock bolts for the crank pulley u replace them with the older ones and bolt threw the v belt pulley into the crank pulley...
