All threaded holes in the block and cylinder head should cleaned and tapped with a thread chaser.
All bolts being installed should be lubed with a light oil or anti-seize on the bolt threads before assembly.
This kit is designed to be used with a 1998-02 Camaro LS1 water pump. The water pump will
need to be removed to install the rear AC bracket to the passenger side cylinder head. Install
the "A" spacers between the rear AC bracket and the pasenger cylinder head using 3 flat head
bolts, and one socket head bolt with small stainless washer. The socket head bolt uses the
spacer A-1. Torque bolts to 28 ft lbs.
Install the top plate onto the bottom plate using the 4 billet "B" spacers between the two
plates and the 4 100MM flat head bolts. Torque bolts to 28 ft lbs.
Mount the compressor between the front and rear plate using the "C" and "D" spacers.
The front spacers, "C", use the flat head bolts with one stainless washer under each nut.
The rear spacers, "D", use the socket head bolts with two stainless washers each. Torque
bolts to 28 ft lbs.
Intsall the idler pulley onto the front plate. This can be moved around depending on if you
are using a large or small case alternator, or a smaller pulley on the supercharger etc. The
gold washer goes under the bolt head, the stainless washer and nut are installed on the
backside of the bracket after you determine the correct location of the idler pulley.
Install the tensioner onto the front bracket. Torque bolt to 28 ft lbs.
Alternator / Power Steering Bracket-
All threaded holes in the block and cylinder head should cleaned and tapped with a thread
chaser. All bolts being installed should be lubed with a light oil or anti-seize on the bolt threads
This kit is desinged to be used with 1998-02 Camaro power steering pump. Begin by installing
the lower pulley kit to the front bracket. The bolt includes a small stainless washer and a lock
nut for the back side. Torque the nut on the rear while holding the front bolt to 28 ft. lbs.
Next, mount the front plate onto the block. Use the longest bolts in the kit. Spacer "D" is
placed at the bottom.
Then, mount the rear plate between the head and the outer plate using the "A" spacers
against the head, and the "B" spacers between the two plates. Corvette does not use
an "A" spacer.
Next, mount the alternator between the two plates using the two 80 MM bolts. Place a
small stainless washer on both outer sides of the plates and then the lock nuts.
Next, mount the 1998-02 Camaro power steering pump onto the front plate using the supplied
8 MM bolts. We include several long and short bolts to accomodate different styles of pumps.
Be sure that your pump has the return pipe stub installed before installing your pump to the
Torque all 10mm bolts to 28 Ft. Lbs. Torque the 8mm bolts to 12 Ft. Lbs. Install power
Power Steering Pulley-
All billet power steering pulleys should be installed dry, with no lube of any type. The power
steering pump shaft should be clean and free of damage. The pulley is machined with a larger
step on the opening to aid in getting the pulley straight during installation. Clean the pump
shaft and the inner hole on the billet pulley with brake parts cleaner. Camaro pulleys have a
machined stop inside the pulley and will not be installed flush to the pump shaft as seen from
the front. Pump threaded hole should cleaned and tapped with a thread chaser. Pump bolt
should be lubed with a light oil or anti-seize on the bolt threads before assembly. Install the
included bolt with billet washer and torque to 28 ft lbs.
Check the tensioner edge to verify the tensioner is sitting in the middle of its travel. If the belt
needs to be looser you can move the AC idler pulley farther away from the supercharger pulley,
closer to the AC compressor. If it needs to be tighter move the idler closer to the supercharger
pulley. The belt should be routed around all pulleys and slipped over the water pump pulley last.
The belt should be so tight that it requires two people to install it.
Water Pump Spacers-
Install the water pump spacer with the coolant bypass fitting on the driver's side of the engine. If you do not want to use the coolant bypass a plug is supplied in the kit. Either way, the threads should be installed with teflon sealant.
