Anyone running a serpentine belt set-up on a 55 Chevy with a small block? What motor mounts do you have, front or side? What water pump, long or short? Wondering about fit and clearance issues with frame.

I have a '57 SBC running an Alan Grove Components serpentine belt system. As far as I know all serpentine systems use a long water pump. I also have my radiator in the 6 cylinder position with two Spal fans on it. Works great even here in our Texas summers. I am using side motor mounts with a cross member for the rear mount. No issues with fit or clearance with the frame.

'57 210, 327 cid, Holley MPFI, 700R4, A/C & more.
'51 Studebaker Starlite coupe, 350, TH400, GV OD.

Billet Specialties is the one I used and it is one of the narrowest ones available.
