Conversions & Hybrids - Body vs. Fbody accessory drives
04-25-2011, 11:14 PM
I have a 99 vette ls1 and wanting to change to an Fbody accessory drive. My question is what parts can I reuse n what will I need to buy? Such as... Are the powersteering n waterpumps the same minus the brackets or are they different? Are the belts the same length? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think the waterpumps are the same, but the alternator and power-steering bracket is different. The alternator may be the same.
I can tell you one thing for sure. You won't have any trouble selling the Vette accessory system in the parts for sale section. It is one of the most desirable for many swaps.

You could prolly trade someone straight across for the f-body ones. BTW why do you have two of the same threads one min apart.

Can I ask why you want to do it? Your just making less room in the engine bay with the fbody accessories over the corvette ones.

This swap is going in a 240sx and I'm just seeing that most people run the f body drive for hood clearance. B/c the alternator sits to high near the top of the motor.

But if there is anyone that would want to do a straight up trade for my vette drive for their f body drive... Let me know, so if I go that route we could do this very quickly with no down time.
