Looking at doing the conversion on an EB

G'day. The advantages of a serpentine belt arrangement are that the engine runs quieter (ie. less belts making noise) & it updates the look of the engine. For the parts, the best place to try is the wreckers. I'm pretty sure they're not sold as a kit, unless a member has the parts for sale.

Try this link and then decide if you want to fork out the $$$ for the parts.

Hi.

I did this not too long ago on an ED engine.

Link to Thread

Depending on what manifold you are using, you need to set up things differently.

As for cost, if you have to buy all the bits, you would be looking easily at $300 to $400 dollars.
