96 chevy crewcab dually lowered 2wd/12v swap

i posted a couple pics of this in another thread, at that time it was a personal "backburner" project... times change, was moving, ended up selling it... but the buyer is paying me to finish it up.

so fast forward a couple months, move is done, all settled into the new shop... this project is #1 on the to-do list.

pics as it was sold:

gas motor out, 6bt/a518 test fit

mounts built, nothing hangs below front crossmember

as it was sitting when it got sold... the start of the relocated a/c and chevy alt braket seemed to generate a lot of interest

that brings us to todays progress... needed to finish up the a/c and alt mount and figure out how to adjust belt tension. this was after pulling the front cover and doing the kdp fix... no need to show pics of that.

i ended up doing a manual tensioner in the only place i had room, and its actually the smooth pulley off the factory tensioner... made a slot in the alt braket.. turned a spud for the pulley, and used a captured bolt jack to pull tension into the belt.

min adjustment

max adjustment

the cast iron a/c comp mount was cut off, bolted to my new plate, which also has a standard chevy hose size water outlet. once everything was lined up perfect, i broke out the silicone bronze just to make sure it doesnt go anywhere. the chevy alt was a simple pulley change, and line it up... has a chunk of dom on the main plate... and then the support arm holds the outside. the support arm is what has the tensioner slot in it.

tomorrow we will see if the length belt i need actually exists... if so... i will stop and buy a lotto ticket
