Default 86 custom deluxe chevy

So im helping build a 86 chevy squarebody, d44 front, 14 bolt ff rear, 427 talldeck backed by a th400.completely rebuilt axles with 4.10s. 6 in suspension lift, all new steering and suspension parts. 2in body. Motor is dressed up but only "aftermarket" parts are edelbrock intake fot td, edelbrock 750 carb, holly fuel pump, 69 corvette hd waterpump, dual electric fans, fuel cell, and other misc items. Ran into a snag with this motor, trying to find a crank pulley that will either fit the TD balancer or will line up with standard pulleys from a 427(v belt). Any input or help is appreciated. And Fyi yes i know the d44 wont hold up to the 427 but 4wd will hardly be used as it is a sand toy pics are kinda recent in the build.

I hope you braced up the frame around the steering box.
What size tires do you plan to run with that amount of lift?
It is looking like a good build.

I love those square body chevy trucks . 6 inch lift and 37s would be sweet. If AI ever had one down that far again I would box the frame and add in some cross bracing. The only truck I had like that was way to flexy in the frame department.

X3 on the frame. I would box it from the rear spring hanger of the front suspension all the way to the front. I had the front frame horns bend down on my K5 and it cost me a weekend of wheeling. And it was a nightmare to fix.

And for the pulley cant you just get a new balancer and pulley to match your needs? A quick call to Summit would be where i would start. Good luck nice Chev.

Oh and i hope you bought softride springs...

Find a lathe, a chunk of aluminum and make your own custom pulley .

Change the balancer to a standard internal balance 396/427 unit . Then pulleys to match water pump length.
