I’m mounting a blower on a Buick 215 and I thought I could save some space at the front of the engine by converting it to serpentine drive, so off to the junkyard looking for pulleys I could adapt only to find out that everything I looked at with serpentine belts had the water pump turning opposite of my Buick. Now Im thinking I need the timing cover, water pump, etc, from a Rover. Will it fit ???
Everything off a Rover will fit, but at the end of the day there may be differences in the ancillaries that may not accept the serp pulleys due to holes and their sizes, so you may need to drill and modify to suit the Buick/American components.
I had a 3.5 (vee-belt) Rover V8 which I was trying to supercharge. I used the spare V pulley on the crank pulley but it just couldn't transmit enough power and was getting supercharger belt slip. So looked at converting my timing cover to serp setup - but I found a second hand 4.6 which happens to come with a serp timing cover at probably less cost than a serp timing cover on its own - obviously not factoring in rebuilding and top hat lining the 4.6!
