    Just wanted to share my setup with everyone. I have a 1994 Suburban with the old belt drive setup. I switched the pulley with a serpentine pulley and mounted conventionally on the drivers side halfway between the p/s pump and the alternator. I did have some trouble finding a pulley with 1/2" inner diameter though. Parts store found one with teeth, so I had to drill out 1 tooth to make room for the keyway. No problems as of yet with the setup, although pump is running a little slow. If I dont come across a better pump by next year, Im gonna try the p/s pump/plow pump hybrid... I currently use a 102" belt to run everything. Im on Long Island and we might not get anymore snow. There is always wishful thinking though...
