Im going to be left without a kit
And we all know how awesome the BBM kit is... It doesn't come with one scrap of paper that tells anything about the products or how to install them. Also, the aluminum bracket that the tensioner mounts too (and slips on the charger bracket) is siezed on my G-60 bracket.
When the tensioner bracket siezed on the charger bracket it stopped the tensioner from doing anything and locked the serp belt under tension. This in turn was too tight on the supercharger and smoked the mainshaft bearings and seals. Now, the charger passes oil right down the mainshaft seals...sweet design BBM.
Then when I asked John about this he said "no that's never happened before, but I might put a grease zerk in the tensioner bracket if I were you". Well John, that would have been a good idea for YOU to do, since you're selling the kits. Oh yeah, sorry I don't have the $3K to buy your Lysholm, but my G-60 WAS working just fine.
Long story short the BBM "kit" gets you pointed in the right direction, but certainly is not a turnkey kit, nor is it engineered that well. For the cost I would try to source the components used on the net.
