    I'm doing the Mini truck PS on my '66 FJ40. Trying to assemble all the parts ahead of time. I have the brackets for a Sag pump, two pulley balancer, bracket to move alt on the way, rag joint, etc, etc. Bought the pump rebuilt but it has no pulley. I've heard they're a bitch to pull off an old pump. Someone posted they got one, chrome, I might add. I checked with local parts stores and they want like $50-55 for a farging pulley! I was stunned and amazed! So what does everyone who is runnung a Sag pump use for a source??? ???
    Thanks,

    Doh! Can't see the forrest for the trees. Thanks.
    Are all the pulleys the same? I've read posts about swapping around different sizes to get the right pump output. I've got a stock F with HEI, stock carb,and a header,running 31's.
    Anybody got a suggestion for a sizw, or one they're happy with?
    Thanks,
    Ed

    I'm running the stock size that came off of a 350. The pump puts out enough to run a hydraulic cylinder and I'm still running an stock F. :( Hoping to get a diesel on the way.

    Things have been doing great. The cruiser is almost finished, well for this round. The floor conversion went in great, thanks. Spring break was a good time to get a lot of work done. I think I did more work in one week than I have this semester. :D I'll shoot you an email with the pictures of everything.

    The gm pulley will work, you'll just have to run a narrower belt than the rest of the cruiser...www.car-parts.com will find you volvo pumps for about $20...

    Thanks, To keep it simple, I think I'll run the narrower belt, at least for now.
