New from Zoops is their POSI-TRAK Serpentine belt system for Ford 289, 302, and 351 motors. Zoops' POSI-TRAK system consists of polished 6061-T6 aluminum bracketry, a polished aluminum faceplate with unique CNC-machined pocketing, Zoops' exclusive Forgelite Pulleys hardened to a T6 condition, a polished OEM spring belt tensioner, a polished Sanden SD-7 air conditioning compressor, a new PowerMaster chrome 110-amp alternator, a new aluminum heavy-duty water pump, two polished idler pulleys for maximum belt grip, high-grade fasteners, a high-quality serpentine belt, and a GM type 2 remote power steering pump calibrated to flow 900 psi. The system is also available without power steering. Best of all, this system positions all the components as close as possible to the center of the motor. This keeps the alternator, A/C compressor, power steering pump, and spring tensioner within the confines of the motor's perimeter. The use of two idler pulleys allows for maximum belt contact and ultimate belt performance. The faceplate has been designed for maximum strength, stability, and eye-catching appeal.

Installing a small- or big-block Chevy V-8 into your '55-'59 Chevy pickup doesn't need to be difficult. Speedway Motors' Chevy pickup engine mounts are designed for simple, straightforward installation. The frame brackets bolt to your truck's framerails, while the engine brackets bolt to small- or big-block Chevy V-8 engine blocks with the common side engine mounts. A heavy-duty rubber cushion is sandwiched between the two brackets to absorb vibrations. For more information, call Speedway at 800/979-0122, or visit www.speedwaymotors.com.
