You wouldn't by chance know what size belt I need to complete the setup would you?
Quote, originally posted by billdapart » Issam, I have your kit on my 16v cabby and I love it! I just bought another used from a friend for my mk2 and I want to retain the power steering. From what I have read I will just need the p/s pump and pulley from a mk3 aba engine, is that correct?
That is correct.
I am working on a kit right now as well that will allow this so you wont need to source any parts from anywhere else.

Well its going to be the same belt - 6PK-894
for the v-belt I dont know.

There is a kit in the works but until I can find a good source for casting that does not break the bank then I do not see it happening anytime soon. There is an OEM kit that uses the water pump , alternator & PS pump all on 1 bracket but that has proven difficult to make work.

This will not work for you. You need the alternator from our kit.

The $599 USD kit.
send me a PM when you are ready.

So you can't just unbolt the alternator pulley and replace it with the one you provide? Is the shaft not the right length? thanks. This would be on a '92 8V engine with plans for an ABA bottom end in the works.

As most of you know though, we were looking into casting a whole new bracket that would allow you to run P/S , A/C & Alternator all on one accessory. After debating it , the cost to do such a conversion would be MORE than converting to a MKIV 06A 2.0 block so we scratched the project.
I've got a 90A alternator and bracket (with tensioner) from a VR6 motor that I want to use for a serpentine conversion on my 2.0L 9A-code 16v motor. I'm completely removing the air-conditioning, but I want to retain power steering if possible.
Can I get by with the Serpentine Conversion package (aside from the ABA p/s pump and pulley)?
Thanks in advance! This is a great-looking product!
