Looks good, but wrong bolts
Bought these while they were on sale a few months back.
The kit includes 4 bolts that appear to be crank pulley bolts, but they're far too small, and they're also too big for the water pump pulley.
The heads on the bolts I already had on my stock crank pulley were too large and interfered with the wall of the underdrive pulley, due to its much smaller diameter.
So because my original bolts (possibly not factory as the car has a previous owner) had heads that were too large, and the provided bolts were too small, I chose to purchase a set of ARP's.
Smaller bolt heads, better clearance, better quality.
As the description states, these pulleys are designed to work with fox's with factory pulley accessories.
My car had the AC and smog pump removed many moons ago before it was mine, and so I had to shop around for a bit to find a belt that would fit.
Finally got it all together and so far I'm happy.
Slightly quicker throttle response, and the engine bay just looks that much prettier.
I've also been told that underdrive pulleys frequently result in the engine running hot due to the fan and water pump running slower-than-stock with the pulley ratio change.
I have yet to run it in any weather over 80 degrees F, but I haven't seen any cooling issues yet.
