Did a search found some info but still have questions.
OK so I've heard a lot of negitive feedback about the Trcker/Sidekick PS set up on rigs with 33"+ tires. So I've got a PS set up out of a 86 Toyota PU. Here's the problem, I'm swapping in a 1.6L Tracker motor this spring & at the same time would like to add the Toy PS set up & Tracker A/C pump for OBA.
Do I need to swap the 1.6L motor over to a v-belt set up by taking the pulleys off my 1.3L motor & make a bracket for the Toyota pump OR should I run a flat belt & swap a flat belt pulley onto the Toyota PS pump? Also is there enough room a correct belt configuration for all this stuff on the 1.6L engine? Is the pump bracket sold by RRO & others in their Toyota kit compatable with the Toyota truck pumps??
Should I get a custom pulley that's flat belt AND v-belt from Rotational Dynamics & run JUST the PS pump on a v-belt & the rest on a flat belt???

confused?.......you bet! I wish the Tracker PS set up didn't suck so bad because it would be easier to swap in I think.

Also what about a Toyota PS pump out of like a Toyota Cressida? This is flat belt right? Is this the same pump as in the PUs?

Petroworks was making pulleys for toy Celica pumps that was the same as the 16v pulley, it might work on other toy pumps. I have seen a few toys with serpentine style pumps @ pnp as well...Corolla GTS 1 and MR2.

I've run the Tracker set up for 3 years now and love it. For the last year I've run 35" MTR's and am switching to Okcrawlers setup only because I'd like to make the tire climb a rock while turning the wheel against it. He uses a stock steering box with a servo inline with his steering column to control a rock ram (sweet setup for a Sami).
