Waverider pulleys on top, Syclone on bottom. Anyone know why they are so different?
The Syclone is a Buick V6 Turbo ( Grand National ) engine not the 4.3 , close enough for 1/25 scale.
The other is a 4.3 out of an S10 . The 4.3 had many different brackets depending on what GM installed the engine in.
Spent a few day's looking in the bone yard for my buddies 4.3 conversion .
Keep on rolling you are doing a good job .
uh the cyclone had a turbo charged 4.3L not a 3.8L turbo . now for the pulleys the waverider pulleys are the newer s10/blazer style. alternator on passenger side a/c compressor on driver side with a newer style v5 a/c compressor. the older 4.3L in the cyclones, blazers, s10, were reversed alternator on driver side a/c compressor on passenger side with the old style v4 a/c compressor . the
switch happened in the late 1995 - early 1996 model year.
awesome job on the model truck so far. and good luck with the real truck memorial cars are the hardest to work on .
