Question Sbf serp belt short. drive setup

Trying to shortern the front of my 351w up to make room for the axle. From my understanding 94-95 mustang is best or will explorer stuff be better? What all is needed?

Thanks for any advice

Which side of the motor do you need room on?

Classic Broncos.com can help too.

Room for axle?

I run mid 90s truck stuff minus the air pump and with ac delete pulley. Nothing is below the balancer.

Trying to fit a triangulated four link in front and dont want to move the axle forward any more. Gonna move the motor back a couple inches and hopefully a couple more swapping accesories. Trying to get photobucket to work

The explorer stuff is the shortest, need the timing cover with the brackets and water pump. About the only tricky part is the balancer.....explorer balancer and pulley are one piece but are not balanced right for the 351W.

Here is a place that sells a balancer with the correct 28 OZ imbalance.
