    This looks near identical to the Summit kit I installed on the 62GT, except mine has PS. The belts run the same though, and are routed in the most logical fashion; each driven component (WP/fan,...

    I'd go with whichever you already have on hand, or whichever one is easiest/cheapest to acquire. I doubt you are concerned with racing the 232, and either one will fit the bill nicely, and spark up...

    I dunno. Also, the anchor/pivot end has an interesting double bend. It looks like a factory job (versus local fab), fits like a glove, everything clears nicely, and it deploys and stows easily. My...

    Problem with the OEM mount is, the metal plate which the idler pulley mounts on is directly inline with the alternator belt. It appears only that plate's corner would interfere with the belt, I will...

    SScopelli, looking once again at your pix, it appears you have an aftermarket compressor mount. Mine is an OEM mount, with an adapter on top for the Sanyo 508. Looked at mine this morning, and the...

    I second on Joe Hudacek. Definitely a thumbs up for his service. He always returns the valves looking and operating as new.

    Thanks for the link, which is an excellent compilation of info provided by many contributors over the decades. I drove the 62GT for about the first 150,000 without its factory HV, but with its short...

    I am usually able to remove them with channel-lock pliers. Limit servicing to cleaning the oil out of them, and gently cleaning the contacts. I use a soft piece of cloth originally made for cleaning...

    Looking closer at your pix, I like the way you ran the alternator belt straight to the crank pulley. I am definitely gonna try setting mine up that way. I have always disliked the idea of two belts...

    I have converted several OEM Stude compressors to Sanyo 508 style. It is not rocket science, but you will need to climb a learning curve. First, you will need a compressor mount adapter, to sit the...

    Today I removed he HV, and re-plumbed the lines to bypass it. After bleeding, I took the car for a test drive. As expected, the pedal is noticeably harder, but the car stops just fine. The car...

    As mentioned above, this failed HV is a repro from SI. Considering the cost, and safety concerns upon failure, I do not plan to install another repro. Not sure which route I am gonna go at this...

    You misunderstood. I did not say the PS belt ran on my 63GT's water pump pulley, but the alternator belt and compressor belts do. The PS belt runs between the AC and WP belts. The compressor belt is...

    I installed the repro HV in April 2014, and 24,000 miles ago. I see boosterdewey guarantees his for 2 years. If rechromed shaft is key to longevity, I doubt the Chinese repro is chrome. In any case,...

    Agree. That one with the floor shift kinda reminded me of the 56J I had in high school. Someone had cut the OEM shift lever off to about a 2" nub, and then stuck the shift knob back on it. Looked...
