Anyone have any experience using one of these? Was wondering if they will fit without water pump spacers or horking up the belt alignment on an alternator and fuel pump? :-k

I believe that was originally designed and manufactured by BLP, I can't see any reason it would have any clearance issues.

It looks like a pretty good piece to me from the pics I saw on Jegs site. Found them online for $473 so the price is right too and replacement belts are less than $60.

I'm going to pull the engine out of the dragster in the next week or two to change the cam timing back to 110 and check some bearings so that would be a good time to install one of these. I've also got a couple of oil leaks still so I'll work on those as well.

Even if I wind up selling that car I'll likely build another 23* short block for the Studebaker using this block, crank and rods.

Maybe someone will chime in with real world experience with one.

I put one on a friends 383. Seems to be a good piece. He has an aftermarket water pump (i don't recall which one) and it wasn't an issue.

Thanks Rick. That is part of what I wanted to know. I've got a CSR pump on that engine now and it's got at least 3/4" between it and the timing cover.

That "Pro Form" or whatever one I tried to use before spaced the balancer forward about a quarter inch and that made everything off on the front of the engine. I do plan to call Comp before I buy one to check that out also as I'd hate to have to re-do the alternator and fuel pump mounts to get the belts to line up.

That shouldn't be that way, the crank pulley should have the same thickness as the stock gear so the balancer fits right. If the balancer isn't on all the way it isn't able to do it's job correctly.

The Comp looked to be identical parts to a Jesel and appeared they would interchange. Don't know if they will for sure, they just "looked" like they would.
